We currently do not have any vacancies for an immediate start. We ask for a waiting list application form to be completed and handed in, your application will then be put straight onto the system. All applications are checked every 2 weeks. The waiting list at the moment can vary between 6 - 12 months.
However, we do have some places available in our new Nursery Class for 3 and 4 year olds, which prepares children for their move to Infant School. Please call us to find out more on 01204 432144.
