Contact Details

You are welcome to talk to the Nursery Manager or any other member of staff about any issues or concerns. You can email the Nursery Manager at, or phone us on 01270 685185 ext 3.


As an oversubscribed nursery, it may not always be possible to choose between a morning or afternoon session however, your preference will always be taken into consideration. At this point we are only able to offer the full 5 sessions and you will be unable to split between two providers. There is no appeal against the decision not to offer a place or against the session you have been offered. Please note that admission into nursery does not guarantee a place in reception the following year.

For all children eligible to start nursery, the following criteria will be applied when there are more applications than places:

  • siblings of children in the main school   
  • catchment
  • distance                                                                                                                         

Please find an enquiry form below and a list of admission deadlines.
