For Nursery pupils a combination of morning, afternoon or full day sessions can be arranged, subject to availability. In order to provide continuity of experience and learning it is preferable for Nursery pupils to attend for five morning sessions as soon as possible after entry although, in some circumstances, parents may wish to begin with three sessions. We consider three sessions to be a minimum.The Nursery class is an integral part of the whole school and places will normally only be given to pupils intending to transfer to the main school.
