At St John of Jerusalem, we welcome applications from families from every culture, faith (or none) and background.
We currently have places available in our Nursery and Reception classes.
We welcome visits to our school.
Please contact our office to arrange a school tour.
Applications to Nursery
If your child is 3 years old, you can apply to join our Nursery class.
Applications to our Nursery are made directly to the school. We have full-time and part-time spaces available. Our Admissions Policy applies to Nursery places, and it should be noted that children who have attended our Nursery have first preference in the Reception applications process.
To apply, you will need to fill out a school application form and a religious observance form if applicable, and return them to the school office, or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Both required forms are at the bottom of this page. You will also be asked to provide your child's birth certificate and passport.
Applications to Reception
This admissions process is for children aged 3 and 4 (born between 1 September and 31 August) who will start reception class at primary school in September.
You will be able to apply online for a primary school place from 1st September. The online system is available 24 hours, 7 days a week. The closing date to submit your application is the 15th January.
You can login and change your preference at anytime until midnight of the closing date, listing any six primary schools in London. Your offer will be sent to you via email.
Before you start
Please read Hackney's Primary School Admissions Guide for Parents.
You will need to register your details and provide an email address. If you have no email address, you can get a free email account with provider Google (Gmail). Once registered, you will then be sent an email with details on how to start your application.
