Nursery Admission Form

When can my child start school?

Children reach statutory school age at the beginning of the term following their fifth birthday and must then be in receipt of full time education. 


At Heathrow children are admitted to the school in September in the year in which they have their fifth birthday.


The intended admission number for Reception to Year 6 from September 2016 is 60.


All prospective parents are encouraged to visit the school before making a decision to apply for a place and should contact the school office to arrange a visiting time.


How do I apply?

Please complete the required application form online by clicking on the London Borough of Hillingdon website above.

Paper applications can be taken or sent to the Civic Centre or Heathrow School by the closing date. Forms that are received after this date will be considered only after places have been allocated for applications received in time.


How are decisions about places made?

If there are enough places at a school for all applicants, then everyone will be offered a place. If there are more applications than places available, they will be put in order of priority.

The order of priority is:

  1. Children in public care
  2. Children who suffer from a long term medical or psychological condition, which makes it necessary for them to attend a particular school.
  3. Children who have a member of the immediate family whose medical or psychological condition makes it necessary for the children to attend a particular school.
  4. Children who will have a sibling living in the same household who currently attends the school and will continue to do so on the date of admission.  A sibling refers to a brother or sister, half brother or sister with one parent in common, adopted brother or sister.
  5. Children living nearest the school.  Distance will be measured in a straight line from the point set by Ordnance Survey at the child’s home address and the preferred school using a computerised mapping system.
  6. Children whose parents have stated a preference for Heathrow Primary School and who live in the streets and areas below will be allocated places in order of distance measured in a straight line from the school to home:
  •  Ashby Way
  • Blunts Avenue
  • Bomer Close
  • Chitterfield Gate
  • Harmondsworth Lane 2 to 46 and 1 to 59
  • Hollycroft Close
  • Hollycroft Gardens
  • Kenwood Close
  • Russell Gardens
  • Sipson Close
  • Sipson Lane (from Sipson Road to M4 spur)
  • Sipson Road 1 – 10 Copeswood Court
  • Sipson Road 239 to 501 and 356 to 544
  • Sipson Way
  • Vincent Close
  • Vineries Close
  • Wykeham Close
  • The Bath Road from the M4 spur to the East and up to but not including 316 Bath Road to the West
  • The area bounded by the Bath Road to the North, the M4 to the East, Northern Perimeter Road West to the South and Nelson Road to the West


Waiting list


When all available places have been allocated, a waiting list will be operated by the local authority.  Any places that become available will be allocated according to the criteria of the admissions policy with no account taken of the length of time on the waiting list or any priority order expressed as part of the main admission round.  Fair access admissions will take priority over the waiting list.

The waiting list will be reviewed and revised:

  • each time a child is added to, or removed from, the waiting list
  • when a child’s changed circumstances will affect their priority 


Nursery Admissions 


Places in nursery are dealt with directly by the school using the same criteria as for admissions to Heathrow Primary School as detailed above.  You should apply directly to the school either by contacting the school secretary on 020 8759 1628 or by downloading the Nursery Application Form.


Children generally start Nursery in the September after their 3rd birthday and will be offered either five morning places a week or five afternoon places a week. We accept applications for the Nursery when your child is over the age of two.
