In Year Admissions Years R-6. How to Apply

We do not have a Nursery.

We currently have vacancies in Reception only and Year 3 only. All other years have waiting lists.  If a place becomes available in other year groups we will contact families in waiting list order.

Admissions open for 2023/24 are open. Please note the school will be closed during the school holidays and all new applications during this time will be processed in term time  Parents of children who joined the waiting list for 2023/4 will be sent an email offering them the option of staying on the continuous waiting list in June 2024.

Please Note: Preston Manor manage our own admissions. Please contact the school office on 0208 385 4089 if you have any enquiries (during school hours) or by email to

Waiting lists will be maintained by the school throughout the school year. A child's position on the waiting list does not depend on the time they have been on the list but will be determined by how they meet the criteria listed below. 

  1. Children in Local Authority Care
  2. Siblings of children currently studying at Preston Manor Lower or Upper School
  3. Children with specific social/medical requirements
  4. Children of Staff at Preston Manor Lower and Upper School
  5. The distance you live from the school

This means that a child's position on the list can go down as well as up, depending on the child's circumstances and those of other applicants. The waiting list will be closed each year and parents will then need to apply for the subsequent year.
