Open Morning for Prospective Reception and Nursery September 2021 Parents
If the current situation allows, we look forward to welcoming prospective families to our Nursery and Reception Open Mornings on the following dates:

On each of the above dates, eight families are invited to meet the Head Teacher and Early Years Lead for coffee and an informal introduction to Vernon Park. Families will then be offered a tour of our Early Years department, main school and grounds.

Applying for school places at other times of the year
If you live in Stockport, all applications for school places must be made to Stockport Council’s Admissions Support and Advice Team, even if the school you are applying for is outside Stockport. The Admissions Support and Advice Team will liaise with other Local Authorities to find out whether or not a place is available.
If the application is linked to a change of address you must provide documentary evidence, this could be in the form of a solicitor’s letter, Council Tax or tenancy agreement. The Council reserves the right to seek further information if necessary. For more information on school admissions please refer to the Stockport Council website. (Click here)
