King Solomon Academy's main entry point is Reception. Parents with children who will be 4 years old on 1 September 2020 should apply for a place in Reception for September 2020 entry. By choosing King Solomon Academy for your child you are placing them in an all-through school with an automatic place in primary and secondary. The first five years of education will take place at the Younger Years Site (on Crompton Street, W2 1ND), which has extensive outdoor space including a large exclusive use early years outdoor play environment. They will then automatically transfer to the Older Years Site (Years 5 to 13) where they benefit from a broad curriculum offer and specialist facilities. This all-through journey means your child can thrive in one ambitious and joined up community over the whole of their education. Reception applications are made through Westminster Admissions by Friday, 15th January 2021.

A brand new, spacious and well equipped nursery will be built on the Younger Years site (at W2 1ND), with up to 90 full time or part time places will be completed by summer 2021 for pupils, including some 2 Year Olds to start in September 2021. All local parents of 2 and 3 year olds including those eligible for 3 year old 30 hours working family funding are welcome to apply. Our nursery provision will be supported by dedicated leadership and fully qualified staff, all working within the wider King Solomon Academy team.
We are keen to find out more about what local families are looking for from our new nursery provision. Please fill in our survey to let us know your preferences so that we can design a nursery which best meets the needs of our community, particularly around timings, and how we should organise our new 2 year old (and 3 year old) places.
The survey can be found here.
Although our main entry date is in September, we also accept mid-year applications for Nursery, once children have turned 2 years old. We expect to be able to take 2 year olds from Septermber 2021. For details of the funding and costs associated with 2 and 3 year old provision, please visit the Nursery section of the website here. Please note that a nursery place at King Solomon Academy does not automatically guarantee a place in Reception.
