Early Years Free Entitlement (EYFE) funded hours are available, subject to entitlement. Extended Free Entitlement must be applied for by the parents and an eligibility code must be provided to the Nursery. Failure to provide a code will result in the full fee becoming payable. Where applicable, funding is applied evenly throughout the year. Funding is also applied pro-rata depending on the number of days per week attended. The School reserves the right to withdraw from EYFE funding at any point and without notice, at which point the full fee will become payable.

We have limited availability on fully funded afternoon sessions, on a first come, first serve basis. Please email [email protected] for more information.

Please note that we require eight weeks’ notice for any amendments or cancellations. We must receive this in writing.

We accept the universal 15 hours and the extended 30 hours funding beginning the term after your child turns 3. The extended funding is only applied for pupils attending full days on an all-year-round booking. Please note, we do not offer funding for 2 years olds.
