Schools admissions: applications for overseas children


In most cases, children arriving from overseas have the right to attend schools in England.

It is the responsibility of parents to check that their children have a right, under their visa entry conditions, to study at a school.  To help parents we recommend that those wishing to apply for a state funded school check that they have a right of right of abode or the conditions of their visas otherwise permit access a state-funded school.

Foreign nationals cannot use the 6 month visitor visa or a 6 month short-term study visa to enter the UK to enol as a pupil at a school. Find out what these visas can be used for on the visitor visa and short term study visa pages.

Determined Admissions Arrangements for Milton Hall Primary School and Nursery

Milton Hall Nursery accepts children who are at least 3 years old – they can start in the term after their 3rd birthday. We have 2 intakes during the year, one in September and one in January and we offer 15 free hours per week (3h AM session 5x a week OR 3h PM session 5x a week).

Admission to our Nursery does not guarantee admission to the school Reception class and a separate application would need to be made for the Reception class through the Local Authority’s Single Application Form (SAF).
