During the morning you will have the opportunity to visit our bright and airy Early Years and Reception classrooms and there will be plenty of fun activities for little ones to do along the way. Head of Lower School, Sam Selkirk and other key members of the leadership and early years teaching team will be there to chat to you and answer any questions you may have. Refreshments for adults and children will be served throughout the morning.

This event is ideal for families interested in joining Green Shoots and Kindergarten classes in the academic years 2023-24 and 2024-25.

Some information you may find helpful:

Our Early Years is made up of two classes:
Green Shoots – for children aged 2 1/2 years old (there are intakes in September and January dependent upon where each child’s birthday falls in the year)
Kindergarten – this is the pre school year and children move up into Kindergarten from Green Shoots or join directly into Kindergarten.

Green Shoots and Kindergarten are warm and caring environments with excellent ratios and an experienced teaching team. Relationships are at the front and centre of everything we do and staff spend time making sure close bonds are formed with each individual child.

Both Green Shoots and Kindergarten are fully integrated into the school so, when the time comes, the children transition smoothly and seamlessly into our Reception classes, already familiar with staff and routines and ready for the learning journey ahead.

We have fantastic Early Years outdoor play areas as well as 15 acres of grounds which the children enjoy every day. We have our own Forest School area and fully qualified Forest School Leader.

Technology is fully integrated into the classrooms and at the forefront of our teaching throughout the school, from Green Shoots upwards.

We look forward to telling you more when you visit.

From the very first time we visited, we loved the amazing feel of the school.  The teachers are so much fun and always have smiles on their faces. Everyone makes you feel welcome. Kindergarten Parent
