Our Nursery is an integral part of our school. On joining us, from the term after their third birthday, your child will immediately feel part of our school community. The experienced and caring staff will work with you to settle your child quickly, and will regular update you on how they are getting on.

The Nursery and Reception Class teachers work closely together, to ensure that all of our Early Years children receive the support they need, and progress well.

The purpose built Early Years classrooms are light and bright, with plenty of activities always available for the children to explore both inside and outside. Nursery and Reception classes share access to our superb Early Years outdoor area

​To arrange a viewing, or register an interest in a place for your child, please contact the School Office. 


Sessions & Pricing

A range of sessions are on offer, Monday to Friday, during term time, as follows:

Morning Session
8.30am to 11.30am
11.30am to 12.30pm
Afternoon Session
12.30pm to 3.30pm
Day session 
8.30am to 2.30pm
End of day session
2.30pm to 3.30pm

From 3.30pm – 4pm supervision is provided for nursery children with older siblings attending after school/ extra-curricular clubs, or those booked to attend Tea Club.

Spaces permitting, you can choose any combination of morning, afternoon or full day sessions with a minimum of 15 hours of funded sessions to be taken across the week.

Based on parental feedback, our pricing structure was simplified from September 2017. All additional (non-funded) Nursery hours are charged at a flat rate of £4.12 per hour

Lunch is no longer included in the session costs. Parents can opt to pay £2 per day for a healthy two-course hot meal, cooked fresh on the premises, or send a packed lunch in with their child. A sample menu can be viewed here.

Nursery children are warmly welcomed at our on-site Breakfast and Tea Clubs when Nursery staff feel they are ready. For some of our younger children, the extended day can prove too much initially. We work closely with every family to advise on when we believe extended sessions would be suitable for their child.

Breakfast and Tea Club sessions are charged at a flat rate of £4.50 per hour, and can be block booked in advance, or booked on an as required basis.

Outside of term-time, we offer care through our Holiday Club. This can be booked on an "as-needed" basis. Please click here for further information.
