Starting nursery

Children are admitted to our Nursery class three times a year (September, January and after Easter) from the term following their 3rd birthday (or later). Full time and part time places are available, and full or half days, which is ideal for introducing children to the school environment.

If you want your child to start in Nursery, you apply directly to school. Contact us via email or ring 01422 842438 to arrange a visit and pick up an application form in the school office.

All 3 and 4 year olds in England are entitled to 15 hours free childcare per week, which equates to 5 half day sessions. Many families are entitled to 30 hours. Extra sessions cost £15.00 per half day.
