Looking for a Reception place now? We do currently have a few spaces available!
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.
