Organisation

Nursery
This is the starting point of the child’s life.  A wide range of activities is offered to encourage the child’s social development, independence and to boost their confidence.


Nursery children attend the Nursery for either morning or afternoon sessions and children start in our Nursery from just after their third birthday.  Please contact school for more details if you would like your child to attend our Nursery.
