Our admissions process for a Reception place or Year 1 to Year 6 is done through Wandsworth Borough Council. Our school office manages all admissions to our very popular nursery (pre-school).

Fircroft is a non-selective community school. All admissions are through Wandsworth Council.
Lots of useful information about how the admissions system works can be viewed on the council's website at:
If you live outside of Wandsworth, you should apply through your home borough. For example, if you live in Merton and you want to apply to Fircroft (which is in Wandsworth) apply through Merton eAdmissions.
The following criteria are used by Wandsworth Borough Council when making decisions about admissions for a place in one of our Reception classes:
- Children classified as looked after and those who ceased to be children looked after because they were adopted, or because they became subject to a residence order or special guardianship order
- Children with a professionally supported exceptional medical need or exceptional social need for a place at a particular school, as decided by the Director of Education and Social Services
- Brothers and sisters of children on the roll of the school on the date of admission
- Children in order of straight line distance from home to school as measured by Wandsworth Council’s Geographical Information System
Please note that if your child attends our nursery, they will not automatically be offered a place in our reception. You must apply and be considered along with all other reception applications.
