Children start our school nursery the term after their 3rd birthday. Children can be added to our waiting list any time throughout the year.
All 3 year olds are entitled to 15 hours free education, they can access this from attending morning or afternoon sessions.

If you want a place in our reception class, you must complete the formal Local Authority application form during the relevant application period. Application booklets are also available from school at the beginning of the school year on request.
