Many of our pupils join Gainsborough in our Nursery class however, a place in the Nursery does not automatically guarantee a place in the main school reception class. Parents have to apply directly to the Hackney Education for a reception class space.
We are holding regular Reception tours for perspective new parents, please call the school to arrange a booking 0208 985 4622.
Full details of the admissions criteria and a copy of the admission form for Reception are available on the Hackney Education website.
