St Stephen's Church of England Primary School has a distinctive Christian ethos which is at the heart of this school and provides an inclusive, caring and supportive environment where children learn and flourish in a setting shaped by Christian values.
We welcome applications from all members of the community and we ask all parents/carers to respect the Christian ethos of our school and its importance to our community.
The admissions policy can be viewed from the link on the right, along with the application forms, and outlines the procedures at St Stephen’s Church of England Primary School for admissions to the main school, nursery and reception class.
If your child is 3 or 4 years old and you live in Lambeth, you can apply for a part-time or full-time place for them in our Nursery.
You should apply directly to the school when your child reaches the age of 2. An application form must be completed and you should draw attention to any special reasons to support the application, for example if your child has medical needs.

You must apply for a Reception place at St Stephen's Church of England Primary School online.
Please see Lambeth Council Primary School Admissions for more information and instructions on how to apply.
Please also complete and return to us the supplementary form, so that we can collect all the information we need about your child.
