Primary Academy


Corby Primary Academy Nursery opened in September 2017 to provide early education for 3 and 4-year-olds. The Nursery will be open term time only and will run alongside the main Academy’s term dates.

We are able to offer full and part-time places for 40 morning sessions and 40 afternoon sessions per day. Children are eligible to start in our nursery the term after their third birthday. 

All children are entitled to 15 hours free early years' education starting the term after their 3rd birthday. Some families will be entitled to 30 hours of free early year’s education. To check your eligibility please go to

Mornings: 8.45am – 11.45 am

Lunch: 11.45am – 12.15pm (additional cost applies)

Afternoons: 12.15pm – 3.15pm

Additional hours, if available, can be booked through the Academy office.

Admissions for 3 & 4-year-olds take place in September, January and April pending available places. Closing dates for applications are as follows: 

For September admission: 31st March, (allocations made May)

For January admission: 31st August, (allocations made November)

For April admission: 31st December, (allocations made March)

Any applications received after these dates will be classed as a late application, and we will only be able to offer a place if any spaces are still available after initial allocations are processed. 

You will be notified by email once allocations are processed to inform you if we are/are not able to allocate your child a place, and to give you the option of remaining on our waiting list.

Children that are allocated a place will be notified of a ‘Transition Day’ when your child can visit the nursery with you, and meet the staff and get a feel for their new surroundings.

Applications are not considered on a first come, first served basis but are allocated according to the Nursery's Admission Policy.

Please be aware that attending our nursery does not guarantee a place in the Academy’s Foundation Stage 2 class (Reception).  A Local Authority application form must be completed and returned to the Local Authority to request a place in our Academy.
