The Tapscott Learning Trust and the governing bodies therein have adopted the London Borough of Newham as the Admission Authority for this school, who organise all admissions centrally. Application forms are available online or through contacting the council 020 8430 2000.
We currently have spaces in our school. For admission information please see below or contact

At Ranelagh School we offer 15 hour government funded placement. Children can receive 15 hours of free early education per week, 38 weeks per year (570 hours across the year).
We also offer 30 hours extended placement at Ranelagh. Please click on this link to find out further: https://www.childcarechoices.gov.uk/
You must apply a term ahead to reserve a 30 hours place from next term. If you submit a successful application, you will be issued with a 30 hours code to give to your approved childcare provider. 30 hours funding will only be available from the term after the start date of your 30 hours code.
If you would like to place your child on our waiting list please come into the school office. Children can be put on the Nursery waiting list from the age of two and, depending on availability of places, will usually start the term after their 3rd birthday.
When a place becomes available for your child you will be invited to a parents meeting where you will be given a welcome pack and have a chance to meet the staff and look around the Nursery. We will then invite you and your child to come in for a taster session in the Nursery and you will then be given a start date.
During your child’s first week in Nursery they have a slightly shorter session to allow them time to settle. Each child is different and our Nursery staff will be flexible to each individual child’s needs.
Please remember that the allocation of a Nursery place does not guarantee a school place and this has to be applied for separately through Pupils Services (details below).
