What says..

Since September 2021, Jane Bond BSc MA (Ed) PGCE.

Entrance

Children can start in the nursery aged 3 – there are two classes, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. Get their names down as early as possible – any time from birth.

Priority is given to siblings, and to the sons and daughters of ex-pupils. School says this does not occasion resentment ‘because it’s transparent’. Clear belief that, so long as parents are invested, this is a school in which almost any child can thrive. ‘My daughter came from the state sector,’ said one parent. ‘There are no airs and graces here, but terrific values.’
