Nursery Admissions

"Happy times are never ending when we are playing and pretending"
William Morris Nursery 

William Morris Primary School opened in September 2019, in a bespoke-built facility, with a 48 place nursery. All 3 and 4 year olds are entitled to free learning and care, in an early years setting from the start of the term following their third birthday, for 38 weeks in a full year. Parents requiring a place for their child at William Morris, will need to complete the school's application form. Parents will be notified of the success of their application, after the application deadline date. Admissions to our nursery are now open; please download our Nursery Application Form. We advise you to read our Nursery Admissions Policy, prior to applying. Children are required to wear school uniform in our Nursery, details for this can be found on our school website:

Decision on Places

Parents will be informed of their offer by a letter. If your child is offered a place, you must confirm your acceptance to William Morris Primary School, within two weeks, using the reply slip.

Please Note: The offer of a nursery place DOES NOT mean an automatic entitlement to a place in the main school.  You must still apply for a school place through the Swindon Borough Council.
