Applying for Early Years

Our Early Years Department incorporates Pre-Nursery, Nursery and Reception:

Pre-Nursery (Rising 3s) – 16 children per morning or afternoon session. On average we have 30 children registered with us.

Nursery (Rising 4s) – 24 children 

Reception (Rising 5s) – Average 18 children

It is never too early to register, as some parents enrol their child before birth.

Entry into Pre-Nursery and Nursery
We are proud to operate a first come-first served entry process into our school at Pre-Nursery and Nursery level. As a result, we recommend early registration where possible. Once an offer of a place has been accepted, induction visits will be arranged close to your child’s starting date. Two-year-olds may enter in the September following their second birthday.

Entry into Reception
The majority of our Nursery children automatically transfer into Reception. On the rare occasions, we have a place in Reception, external applicants seeking admission are invited in for a Taster Session and a short, informal assessment. Once a child has been accepted for a place, they will be invited to come into school for an induction morning towards the end of the summer term.
