We understand that affordability is one of the key issues for parents, and we try to keep our fees as affordable as possible while maintaining the highest quality and standards.
We are registered to offer the 15 hour grant for 2 year olds. We can also offer up to 30 hours funded time for 3-4 year olds. All 3-4 year olds are eligible for the 15 hour universal entitlement from the term following their 3rd birthday.
Parents pay for time outside of the free entitlement. From the term following their 5th birthday full fees become payable. Unfortunately, we do not have any bursaries or scholarships available. Fees are due at the beginning of each term but we are happy for parents to arrange to make monthly payments to spread the cost of fees.

All 3 & 4 years are eligible for 15 hours of free educational entitlement (EYEE) This is offered between 10.15 and 1.15pm each day. This is a universal entitlement. (This is the school’s ‘Basic Offer’ of 3 free hours a day, five days a week). Time outside these hours is charged at £5.25 per hour i.e. from 9.15 – 10.15 is charged at £5.25.
A further 15 hours of entitlement is available to 3 & 4 years whose parents are eligible.
