Entry to our Nursery
We offer very flexible options to work around your and your child’s needs. Your child can stay from 9 o’clock until 3 or take advantage of our ‘wrap around’ provision opening from 07:30 until 18:00. Perhaps you only need mornings? Do you only need one day a week? We are happy to work around you!
You can find out more about the nursery here, or come and see us in the school office to enrol your little one in our very special and magical nursery.

The school is run by its governing body as part of the Catholic Church in accordance with its Trust Deed and Instrument of Government and seeks at all times to be a witness to Jesus Christ. Whenever there are more applications than places available priority will always be given to Catholic applicants in accordance with the oversubscription criteria listed in the school’s Admissions Policy. The Governing Body is the Admissions Authority and is responsible for determining the school’s admissions policy. By applying to the school, parents or carers are declaring their support for the aims and ethos of the school.
