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 regularly 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

​Our Nursery is very popular within the Newton Leys area so please make sure you put your child’s name on the waiting list via the school office. School open mornings are available all throughout the year. All open mornings are led by our Head Teacher and start at 9.00am with an extensive tour. A member of the administration team is always available to talk through any additional questions. Please contact the school office for further information.
