Nursery School

Cheltenham Nursery School

The Nursery School is housed in our brand new purpose-built Nursery building with a beautifully designed outdoor garden for free-flow play and learning.

Nestled amongst the trees on The Prep site, the Nursery School was specifically designed to provide a warm and supportive, state of the art environment in which your child can grow and begin their educational journey.

Children at Nursery School are cared for by expert EYFS staff, receiving highly individualised attention and nurturing. The children also benefit from The Prep site, with access to a fabulous woodland area for Outdoor Learning sessions, as well as our extensive sport facilities for PE lessons.

In addition to developing their numeracy and literacy, our children enjoy French, Drama and Music lessons, taught by subject specialists, as well as regular wellbeing and mindfulness sessions.
