General School Admissions

Our school now has an increased Published Admission Number (PAN) of 60 from September 2025.

Thank you for considering Lillington for your child’s education.

The reception team in Bevan class look forward to welcoming you to our exciting school.

Parents must apply for a place at Lillington Nursery and Primary School through Warwickshire County Council. If you live within our school’s priority area you have more chance of your child being offered a place at our school. Living within the priority area, however, does not guarantee an offer of a place at our school as there may be more applicants living within the priority area than the number of places available.

Places will be offered according to the admissions criteria, including the meeting of application deadlines. 

Late applications will be considered after all those received on-time. 

Please see the WCC admissions process document for useful guidance on the school admissions process or please click the link below to find out how to apply for your child’s place in September 2024 and other admissions information.

When can my child start school?

In Warwickshire children may enter the Reception class at Infant or Primary School the September after their fourth birthday. The law says all children must start school (Year 1) by the beginning of the term after their fifth birthday. If a child attends an Infant School, they will transfer to a Junior/Primary School in the September following their seventh birthday.
