The Nursery is one of the key points of entry to the School and we accept boys in the term they are rising three years of age. From Reception to Year 8.

“If children feel safe, happy and calm, we will get the best out of them”. 

Our Nursery offers a warm and stimulating environment where great care is given to make all children feel safe, comfortable, and nurtured. We offer experienced, highly qualified staff within our happy and caring New Beacon family. A wide range of exciting learning activities is provided to ensure the development of your child’s innate curiosity whilst embedding lifelong skills which encompass the seven specific areas of learning within the Early Years Foundation Stage.


Our nursery children have access to the first class facilities within The New Beacon’s large 22-acre site as well as the dedicated Early Years outdoor learning area and an enclosed adventure playground. They enjoy a wide range of outdoor activities which includes gardening in our dedicated school garden, woodland activities in our newly built outdoor classroom and the surrounding woods, pond dipping, nature walks and a variety of arts & crafts. They also benefit from a whole host of indoor activities where they interact with our specialist teachers in music, swimming and physical activity. Nursery children join our Pre-Prep pupils in specialist workshops, festivals and celebrations.
