For children starting Nursery in September 2022, the deadline for applications is Friday 22nd April 2022 and places will be confirmed in mid-May. Nursery applications are managed by the school.

Children are able to join the nursery throughout this academic year, for example in January or April 2022 if that is the start of the term after they’ve turned 2 or 3. This is dependent on us having spaces available for when they want to start.
