It is with a heavy heart that Bowes will not be admitting pupils into the nursery for the next few years. Please see the letter below for more details.

We hope to open the doors to our nursery again in the future.

We will be able to offer 60 Reception places at Bowes New Southgate for children born between 1 September 2016 and 31 August 2017. 

The school admissions policy is in line with the London Borough of Enfield procedures.

Admissions criteria for September 2021 can be found in the 'Applying for a Primary School - Enfield' booklet below. 

Nursery and Reception admissions for September 2021 have now closed.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, we are unfortunately unable to facilitate parent tours at the moment.

Deferring Entry

If your child was born between 1 April 2017 and 31 August 2017, and you want to defer their entry to school by a full year, please visit these links for more information on Summer Born Children and Guidance for Parents. We also have an application form which is available to download below. 

In-Year Applications

If you move into Enfield and require a school place for your child, you need to complete an 'in-year' application form to apply for a place. You will also need to complete this form if you want to request a school transfer for your child. The form can be downloaded below and used to apply for schools both within and outside of Enfield.

This form can only be completed by parents/carers who live in the London Borough of Enfield. If you live outside the London Borough of Enfield, you must contact your own local authority to ask for the relevant application form. You should return the completed form, together with documentation to confirm the child's date of birth to the following address:


London Borough of Enfield
PO Box 56, Civic Centre
