We are a popular, oversubscribed primary school and admit 60 children into our reception each year (we do not have nursery provision at Gidea Park).  


In 2016/17 the Local Authority asked us to take two additional bulge classes in Reception and Year 2, increasing our admission numbers to 90 in these year groups only. Both of these have now left the school, and our intake has reverted back to 60 children.

As a Local Authority school, we follow the Havering admissions policy which is available in full on the Havering website. 

The Havering School Admissions Team manage the In-Year application process on behalf of Gidea Park Primary School, alongside all other schools in Havering. You must therefore apply following the In-Year process set out via

Please contact Pupil Services [on the Havering One Stop number 01708 434343] or the school office for further information. 

We regularly hold drop-in sessions for prospective parents to visit our school – dates are published on the website calendar and on our Home Page.  We look forward to meeting you for an informal visit.

A virtual tour of the school can also be found on our website.
