Very much part of the Pre-Prep, the Nursery has a warm, happy and stimulating environment. It provides three and four year-olds with a varied, child-centered introduction to education.

Stage 1 - Enquiry


We hope you will find all the information you need on these pages. Our Registrar, Mrs Alison Westbrook, is also available to help with any questions you may have.

Nursery (3+) and Reception (4+) are our main entry points.

The ideal way to see our Nursery and meet our staff is at one of our Open Mornings or on an individual visit with our Registrar. 

Stage 2 - Register


To register your child for a place in any of our Nursery, Pre-prep & Prep year groups, please complete a Registration Form:

UK Registration
Overseas Registration

or contact our admissions team at

If possible, we recommend that parents register their child at least one year in advance of their proposed start date. 

Stage 3 - Pufflings and taster afternoons


Once registered, children who are between the ages of two and three are welcome to join Pufflings, our parent and toddler group that meets weekly. This gives both you and your child the opportunity to get to know us a little better. Between November and January in the year before joining the Nursery, we will invite all registered children for a taster afternoon.

Stage 4 - Offers and welcome

Nursery places are offered by the end of January following the final taster sessions. Upon your confirmation of acceptance, we will send you an information pack and an invitation to meet your child’s teacher and class at the end of the summer term.
