Nursery Admissions

In our Nursery, we offer 52 part-time places across morning and afternoon sessions. including some full-time places.

Children must be at least three years of age when they start nursery in September. You can register your child to go on the waiting list for a nursery place once they are two years of age. Forms are available from the school office which is open between 8.00am and 4.30pm Monday to Friday.

Parents are notified when a place becomes available and are then invited to attend a meeting to discuss the curriculum and complete all of the relevant paperwork. The school offers PART-TIME (15hrs per week) and some FULL-TIME (30hrs per week) nursery places.

In the event of our Nursery being oversubscribed your child will go on the waiting list until a place becomes available.
