Applying for Nursery information

If you would like to put your child's name down for a nursery place, please phone school on 0161 770 5790 or pop into the Wilkes Street site office. We are currently full for this academic year.

We usually fill our Nursery places for each September but if, due to numbers, we are unable to do this we may have additional intakes in January and/or April. If you would like your child to attend our nursery please ensure their name is on our waiting list. 


Our morning session runs from 8.30/8.40 until 11.40am

Afternoon session runs from 12pm to 3pm


We currently ONLY offer the following provision

  • PART TIME AM (15 hours free) Monday to Friday 8.40-11.40
  • PART TIME PM (15 hours free) Monday to Friday 12pm-3pm
  • FULL TIME 32 and 1/2 hours Monday to Friday 8.30 - 3pm

If your child is in receipt of the 30 hour free entitlement we charge a fee of £12 per week to cover the additional 2 ½ hours that we provide each week.

Some parents who are not entitled choose to top up their 15 hour morning provision and pay for the afternoon sessions. This is at a cost of £65 per week.

We use an online payment system called Pay360 Education Payments  - Secure Online Payments ( which allows parents to pay for nursery fees. 


Please note that by attending our nursery your child IS NOT guaranteed a place in our reception class. These applications are handled by the local authority. Information will be sent out in September by school regarding how to make these applications.
