In September 2015 we were delighted to open our brand new, state of the art nursery.
Following the opening of the school in 2014, it had taken an additional twelve months to finalise the nursery's development to ensure that what we offer is the best available for your child, not just in the area but across London.
We have invested nearly £100,000 in doing this - by far our biggest capital investment to date. We believe that what we have in unrivalled. However, we will let you be the judge of that. Please come and visit (tour dates can be found on our home page).
Although attending the nursery does not guarantee a place in the school, we strongly wish to admit children to the nursery whose parents/carers wish them to attend the infant school. This will aid continuity of experience to the children, helping them settle easily and maintain friendships already established in the nursery.
The nursery offers both 15-hour and 30-hour free childcare places. Parents of children accessing a 15-hour place, are able to purchase 'top-up hours' at a cost of £30 for each 4-hour session.

The nursery has 39 full time equivalent places.
