Our nursery offers places to children a term after they are 3 years old. Our nursery sessions are mornings only at 15 hours per week. If parents wish to register their child for a place in Nursery they are welcome to submit an application during the year in which their child has their second birthday. Early registration is recommended because places are limited.

If you would like to register your child to attend our nursery, please contact the school office to complete an application form.
