Stanford Primary


As an Academy, our admissions, including the school's waiting lists, are administrated in conjunction with Merton Borough Council.

If you do not live in the London Borough of Merton, please apply using your home Borough's Common Application Form, even if you are applying for a Merton school.

Once a place at Stanford has been offered, a mutual time for a home visit will be arranged so that we can get to know your child and family before they start. We pride ourselves on helping children to have a smooth transition to Stanford by working closely with parents and carers.

Early education provides an opportunity for your child to learn and play with other children in a safe and structured environment, helping to give them a head start when they begin school.

Nursery children have a staggered intake to ensure children settle quickly and have a stress free start to their Early Years education. Having a place in the Nursery does not guarantee a place in Reception. You will need to re-apply for a Reception Class place.For more information on Nursery admissions, click the link below.




Children are eligible to start in Reception in the September of the school year in which they turn five years old (the school year runs from 1 September to 31 August).

Reception admissions are organised centrally by London borough of Merton school admissions.



Years 1 - 6

Admission into these year groups would typically be for in-year school admissions (for children new to the area or without a school), junior applications and transfers. For further guidance, click the link below.
