Welcome to our Pre-school information page. We currently have two classes in Pre-school, with approximately 26 in each class at any one time. Our team ensure that the Pre-school provision meets the expectations set out in the Early Years Foundation Stage, as well as provide opportunities for them to integrate and be part of the academy as a whole.
