Applications for a Reception Place

Bromley residents should apply online at from 1st September 2017. Online applications will only be processed when proof of address and parental responsibility have been received by the Admissions Team.

Applying online is quick, safe and secure. The system is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week until the application deadline. This is the preferred application method and details can be checked or changed online at any point until the deadline.


If you are unable to make an online application, paper forms are available on request from the Admissions Team.

The London Borough of Bromley processes all school applications for Bromley residents. You cannot apply directly to schools.


Please be aware that even if you already have a child attending Manor Oak Primary School, you MUST still apply for a place for the child requiring a place in Reception 2017.


You MUST also apply for a place if your child attends our Nursery as they DO NOT automatically gain a school place.


The number of intended admissions for the year commencing 1st September 2018 will be 30.     

If your child has a statement of special educational needs, please contact the Special Educational Needs team (LBB) for further information.
