School Tours

Our school tour is a chance for you to see our classrooms in action and meet some of our staff.

We run regular tours and you can book them online.

Admission Arrangements for starting School

All admissions, except those to Nursery, are managed by Hackney Learning Trust.

In order to apply for your child to attend Lauriston School, you should complete Hackney Learning Trust's Common Application Form online. For information regarding Hackney's admission procedure please visit the Learning Trust website.

When applying for Reception you can list up to six state-funded primary schools, academies or free schools in any London area in the order of preference. The Reception class admissions process is co-ordinated London-wide, this is to ensure that children are offered only one place in any state-funded school or academy. The closing date for applications is 15th January 2021.

Admission Arrangements for starting Lauriston Nursery

Places for Nursery can be applied for at the school office. Our Nursery can provide places for 50 pupils at any one time. Children can be added to the Nursery waiting list when they are 2 years old. If your child is offered a place they can start our Nursery after their 3rd birthday.

Nursery Application Form

Attending Lauriston Nursery does not mean that your child will automatically join our Reception classes. All Reception places must be reapplied for through The Hackney Learning Trust.

Full-Time and Part-time Places

All three and four year olds are eligible for free early years education (15 hours per week). At Lauriston Nursery we offer either a morning (9.00 - 12.00) or afternoon place (12.30 - 3.30).  Since September 2017 some working families are eligible for a Full time place (30 hours per week). Full time places are funded by the Government for working parents. Parents who wish to be considered for a Full time place will need to check their eligibility the school term before their child is due to start nursery. This can be done online using the childcare calculator on the GOV.UK website.

Eligible parents will receive a code which must be given to the school in order for your child to receive 30 hours. This process must be completed before the start of each school term in order to receive a funded place. All other children will be considered for a part-time place (15 hours per week).

We also offer the option for families to top-up the nursery provision and pay for the additional 15 hours. Please note this is due to availability and priority is for working families who have an eligible 11 digit code. If you are interested in this provision please speak to the school office for further information.
