St Matthew's Primary School & Nursery

Admissions

St Matthew’s School & Nursery serves not only its local community in Westminster, but also children from neighbouring boroughs.

For some pupils, this is a short journey over one of the bridges, and for others it might be a longer journey from the commuter belt because their parents work locally in Whitehall, Westminster or Victoria.

With Breakfast Club starting at 7.45am, and After School Club finishing at 6pm, working parents are well-catered for at St Matthew’s School.

Each year, we have a mixture of full-time Nursery places (9am-3.30pm) and part-time places (morning or afternoon) available.  

The first 15 hours of Nursery Class are free for all pupils.  For the additional 15 hours (for a full time place) parents can supply the school with a 30 hour code or pay £50 a week.  Free places are available for children of service families and for families that can demonstrate that their child is eligible for free school meals. 

Please contact the school office if you need more information about this process.
