Welcome to the Anson Primary School admission page. This page has all the details you need if you are looking to apply for a place to our Nursery or Reception classes for September 2022. There is also some information regarding transfer to secondary school.
Since October 2021 we have been welcoming groups of parents through the doors to take a look around the school and find out more about our work and what we can offer your child.
Unfortunately all those sessions have been fully booked. We have laid on extra sessions and these are also fully booked.
If you have not managed to book an appointment as the school please use the film below and explore the website to give you a feel for the school and help you to make a decision about sending your child to Anson.
We are a school that is inclusive, focuses on the well-being of every child and ensures that both the staff and children are in the best position to achieve. While we place a high value on every child being a reader and every child being a writer, we encourage children to know how they learn too. We actively promote collaboration, resilience, risk-taking, thinking, independence and aspiration throughout the year.
Children take part in festivals of film, art and science and explore the world around them physically and virtually too. Plus, from the earliest age they step on to our stage and are encouraged to have a voice.
This voice can change the way the school works as part of our School Council, Eco-Council, Digital Leader and Peer Mentor programmes. We are a school that ignites the desire to learn, not just through our time at school, but throughout our lives.
Let's take a look at how you can join us.
applications available in person from the school or send in the application form below. These will be updated from Brent very soon.
Places at our Nursery are allocated by the school.
We are always looking to welcome new families to the school so please do get in touch to find out if we have space for your child. Children need to be three years of age for the September intake in order to qualify for a place in Nursery. If you would like to apply for a place you can download a the form on this page or pick up a pack from the school office at any time.
Our Nursery is currently part-time with the school day running from 8.45am to 11.45am.
Please note that we apply the same admissions criteria for our Nursery as the admissions criteria for schools in Brent. Click the link below to find out more.
applications through Brent Council
After the October Half Term we will be hosting visits for prospective parents who want to take a look around. In the meantime, we hope that by watching our film about Anson, using the school website and social media channels, you can get a feel for our school.
You should be aware that if your child is not in the catchment area of the school it is highly unlikely you will get a place at the school unless you qualify under the other criteria on the Brent website. Brent Council decide the admission criteria that are used to determine who has priority for places at the school.
Having said that, every year is different and we encourage you to make a full selection of schools on your application form to ensure you have the best chance of getting into a school of your choice.

apply via the Brent website
It may be that your child is currently in Year 5 of primary school. You need to begin thinking about where you want your child to go to for their secondary education. This process must be completed by the end of the October when you child enters year 6. There is information about secondary schools on the Brent website and many of them hold open days, both physical and virtual.
Pupils in Year 6 are able to go to secondary schools for tests during school time if necessary.
