Welcome to Early Years

Our Virtual Tour

Normally we would invite all prospective parents to an Early Years Open Morning but unfortunately, due to the current COVID-19 restrictions , we are sadly unable to invite parents into school. However, we hope that our virtual tour above will help to give a flavour of our Nursery and Reception environments.
