From £64.20 - £76.40 per day

depending on sessions 

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 Pre-School 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 Lambs Room and the Pre-School Nursery class are an integral part of the whole school; if over-subscribed, priority will be given to pupils intending to transfer to the main school.

Further details of Nursery fees, including Lambs (ages 2-3) are available from the Finance Officer.

“Our son joined Fairfield in Year 2. His teacher discovered he was worried about making mistakes so she taught him that there is a positive side to getting things wrong, that's how we learn and figure things out. It was a huge step forward for our child. From that point to Year 6 he has developed from a shy child into a confident young man.

This school really does take notice of the quiet children.”
