School Admissions

Hollickwood School is a one-form entry primary school with Nursery. Admissions for Nursery are managed by the school and Reception to Year 6 admissions are managed by London Borough of Barnet Admission Team.


Morning and afternoon Nursery classes have 26 places each. All parents of three and four year olds are entitled to 15 hours of free childcare and working parents may be entitled to additional 15 hours of free childcare. At Hollickwood we offer a limited number of 30 hour places. These hours can be arranged over morning/ afternoon session or full days according to parents' needs. Application can be made by submitting the following form to the school office.

Applications for every age group will be considered according to our admissions criteria below.

Our admissions criteria for September 2021 are as follows:

The admissions number for children to be admitted in each year in 2020 is 30. Where more applications are received than 30, the following over-subscription criteria will be used in the order set out below.

1.    Children looked after by a local authority.

2.    Children with exceptional medical, social or educational needs that can only be met at this school, assessed with the help of specialist local authority staff on the basis of letters from appropriate professional consultants. (The medical condition of parents or other family members, or difficulties of child care arrangements because of work or other commitments, would not be grounds for priority under this category. Information not provided at the time the application is submitted may not be considered at a later date.)

3.    Children who will have a sibling attending the school at the time or proposed admission. (Siblings include half, step, adoptive and foster siblings provided they live at the same address as the applicant.)

4.    Children who live closest to the school, measured in a straight line in accordance with the local authority's measuring system.

If a place is not available, parents can request that their applications be kept on a waiting list maintained by the London Borough of Barnet. Any places which subsequently become available to be offered by the London Borough of Barnet according to the criteria listed above.

Please contact the school office if you would like any further information or advice about this.
