Any amendments must be forwarded to Mrs Best (Assistant Bursar) at least 2 weeks in advance of the dates above, via her email .

All children aged 3 and 4 are eligible for 15 hours per week of free term-time early education, available from the term following a child’s third birthday, up to and including the term they reach compulsory school age. We also offer the 30-hour entitlement to families who meet the criteria laid out by the government. For further information, please visit the Government's website.

Nursery fees can be paid by direct debit, childcare vouchers and via a tax-free childcare account.
