The Academy nursery operates two teaching groups with a maximum capacity of 16 children in each group – it may be necessary to reduce this number depending on the need of individual children. ‘Hatchlings 1’ runs on Monday (9am-3pm), Tuesday (9am-3pm) & Wednesday (8.45am-11.45am). ‘Hatchlings 2’ runs on Wednesday (12pm3pm), Thursday (9am-3pm) & Friday (9am-3pm).

Primary Provision

City Academy Whitehawk has 60 places in each of our primary school year groups, starting from Reception and finishing with Year 6. The school will admit this number of pupils if there are sufficient applications. If fewer than 60 applications are received, the school will offer places to all of those who have applied. Brighton & Hove City Council co-ordinates the admission of children into City Academy Whitehawk at both the start of the Reception year (4+ year olds) and ‘in-year’ for older age groups.
