Nursery Admissions

We have a school Nursery, located in our KS1 building. It is a very popular and busy Nursery.

At our Nursery we offer the following sessions:

30 hours funding              = 9am – 3.10pm Monday – Friday.

15 hours funding              = either all day Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday a.m. or

= all day Thursday, Friday, and Wednesday p.m.

Pick up on Wednesdays is at 11.45am and drop off is at 12pm, if your child does the half day.

Due to our capacity and numbers, we do not offer top up sessions only funded sessions. Once all sessions are booked then we are full until the following September.

We usually only have a September intake as the Nursery is usually full, however occasionally a space may open up, so we keep a waiting list.

If you wish to register your child for Nursery and get them on our waiting list, please email into school at and we can then send you the necessary form for you to do this. We will be unable to confirm places straight away. We suggest that you do this as soon as possible, as we have limited places.

If you have any other questions or queries please again, contact the school office.
