Children are admitted to Nursery from the term after they turn 3 years old. All 3 and 4 year olds are eligible for 15 hours free funded nursery entitlement. If you wish to apply for a place in Nursery contact the school directly. Nursery places are in demand and we have a waiting list therefore we advise that you register your child for Nursery on his/her first birthday.
