Pupils commence in our Nursery the term after their third birthday. Please complete a registration form; you may either download one (see section below), call in to the main school office or telephone and we shall post one out to you for completion.

These events are held in the Autumn, Spring and Summer Terms. Your child will then be invited to attend taster sessions. Please don't hesitate to contact us for further information.
