Early Years Life

St Joseph's Nursery and Reception classes offer a gentle start to school life, with superb indoor and outdoor facilities and fully qualified and experienced staff. Both the Nursery and Reception are rated "excellent" in every area in the school's most recent ISI report.

There is a large indoor area for interactive learning as well as separate wet areas for art and craft activities. Here the seeds of a love for learning are sown and are ready to be nurtured, fostering a lifelong respect for the value of education.

The dedicated and caring staff create a purposeful family atmosphere for all the children. They focus on the well-being of each individual child. Each child’s interests are built upon, their understanding expanded, and their interests inspired.

By encountering a broad range of carefully planned activities we enable each child to enjoy their education whilst learning good manners and respect for each other.

The Nursery has its own beautiful and secure outdoor play area, whilst having access to all the other facilities and resources in both the infant and junior department and the rest of the College grounds.

Timed to make life easier for parents, our 8.30am start and a late stay option (up to 5.30pm) makes more time for learning as well as play.
