Choosing a school is a very important decision for parents. We would love to welcome you for a tour so that we can show you all that Nythe Primary School has to offer.

By law, a child does not have to start school until the term following their fifth birthday. However, most children start school in the September following their fourth birthday. Applications are managed to a national timetable and co-ordinated between local authorities across England. This means that parents must apply to the local authority where they live, even if applying for schools in another area. If you live in Swindon you can find all the information here.

The closing date for applications is 15 January 2024.

All offers will be for a full time place, but if you would prefer your child to attend part-time or delay entry until later in the year, please contact the school direct to arrange this.

Nythe Primary School is part of Excalibur Academies Trust, all admissions information including Nythe Primary School’s Admissions Policy can be found here

Admission in other school years

Parents can make an application for Swindon school places at any time in the year. Known as an ‘In Year Application’ they are processed every 30 school days. Information on making an In Year Application can be found here

Secondary Transition

At the end of Year 6, children transfer to secondary school. Applications for a place at secondary school must be made through Swindon Borough Council in the autumn term of Year 6. Your child will bring home a form or you can apply online.

Transfer arrangements for our Year 6 pupils going to secondary school are sent to parents during the Spring Term prior to their children starting in September.
