Nursery places

Children can attend nursery from the September following their 3rd birthday. Having a place in a nursery class at a particular school does not guarantee your child a place in a reception class at that school, and you will need to make a new application for reception class.

The closing date for nursey place applications for children born between 01 September 2013 and 31 August 2014 was 23 February 2018.
If you've applied, we'll let you know the outcome by 12 May 2018.

Applying after the closing date

Late applications are dealt with after the on-time submissions, if you're applying after the closing date, we recommend naming more than one preference as available places may have already been granted at your preferred school.


You must only complete this application if your child was born between 1 September 2014 and 31 August 2015.
If you are trying to move your child from one school to another, please complete the school transfer application instead.

More information

If you're applying after the closing date, your application will be processed after all the on-time requests have been dealt with. This means your preferred school may be full by the time we process your application and, for this reason, we recommend that you name more than one preference when applying.

Late applications received between 11 November 2017 and 19 January 2018 will be considered together, regardless of date received, against the oversubscription criteria detailed in the Denbighshire Schools 2018-19 guide.  Applications received after 19 January 2018 will be dealt with in date order, with the earliest considered first.
