St Paul's VA Primary School



We offer daily nursery care for children aged 3 and over. Children are welcomed into the same class room as our infants for the afternoons from 12.45pm til 3.15pm every day, where they can learn, socialise and play with their new found friends. Our nursery follows the national Curriculum, meaning that your child will be prepared for full time school, when the time comes.


If you wish to come along to visit the school, see our environment and meet the staff, please feel free to contact us to make an arrangement. Our  Contact Us page has details of how to do this.


Nursery Applications


Nursery education is offered on the basis of two and a half hour sessions, five times per week, during the 2023/2024 school year.

You should complete Wrexham’s local authority application form to apply for a school place, however as we are a Voluntary Aided school, you should also read our admissions policy here.

Where we refer to ‘our application’ on this page this means the local authority application - as Wrexham Council is the local admissions authority for community schools in Wrexham County Borough.

From January 4, 2023 you could apply for a nursery school place for your child. Places are open to children who will have reached the age of three by August 31, 2023.

You can apply online here - this is the quickest and easiest way to apply. You will also get an email letting you know your application has been received.

Alternatively paper applications are available by emailing

The closing date for applications was February 17, 2023. Late applications are dealt with after those received on time, so it’s important you meet the deadline.

 If you wish to apply for a place outside of the normal admission timeframes, or need further support, please call the Headteacher directly and she will be able to advise you of available places and how to apply. Call  01948 770676

Anyone expressing an interest in admission outside the normal admission round will be given an application form at the first point of contact. Once received, such applications will be considered without delay and a formal decision either to offer or to refuse a place will, as far as is possible, be made and notified to the applicant within 15 school days or 28 calendar days whichever is the sooner.
