Admissions Statement

Tanworth in Arden Church of England Primary School and Nursery will continue to give priority for admission to Reception Class to children living within the local government wards of Tanworth and Earlswood. However with effect from September 2014, for children living outside Tanworth or Earlswood but wishing to attend Tanworth School, priority will then be given to those who have attended Tanworth Nursery for the whole academic year before entry to Reception Class.
