Admissions and New Starters
A very warm welcome to Harpur Hill Primary School and Nursery. Our school caters for children aged 2 to 11 years. We have our own Governor Run Nursery, Breakfast and After School Club - all on the same site. If you are new to the area, or live locally and would like your child to start Nursery or Reception, please get in touch and we will be happy to answer any questions you may have and arrange a visit. Prospective parents are always welcome to meet with the Headteacher, Mrs Giliker, for a tour of the school. Please phone or email to arrange this.

Our Governor run Nursery admits children from the age of two. The main starting points for Nursery children are: September, January and after Easter. Some parents choose a more gradual, flexible start which can be discussed with school.
If you would like a nursery place for your child, please contact the school office. More information can be found in the Nursery section.
Children usually start Reception in the September prior to their 5th birthday.
Derbyshire Local Authority allocates places at Harpur Hill Primary School for Reception children. Parents are required to apply for a place for their child to start Reception using the Derbyshire online admissions process: www.derbyshire.gov.uk/admissions
The window for applying for places opens in November and closes mid January (prior to the September when children are due to start).
Joining school at other times
You may want to apply for your child to join school other than when they are due to start in Reception. If you want to apply for a place, you can do this online through Derbyshire school admissions by clicking the link below:
