Early childhood education takes place in our Nursery, from 8.50am until 12noon for the morning session and 1pm until 4pm for the afternoon session with additional options for children with funding for 30 hours. There are three intakes per year to the Nursery, this being in the term following the child’s third birthday (for limited two year old places please contact school). Children with particular special needs, as defined in the Local Education Authority's criteria, may be admitted at an earlier stage.
