Infant & Primary Admissions

Nursery Admissions

We have a well-established purpose built Nursery with 30 part time and a number of full time places available. We have excellent indoor and outdoor facilities for our children. Our last Ofsted inspection in June 2019 stated that ‘Senior leaders work well together to ensure that pupils get the best possible start to their education’. We have highly experienced early years practitioners consisting of a teacher, a higher level teaching assistant (formerly Nursery Nurse) and classroom assistants.

If you are interested or know anyone who may be looking for nursery provision, you can ring the school or call in to pick up an application form and arrange a visit to meet the staff and have a look around the Nursery.

Children are admitted to Greenbank Nursery following their 3rd birthday if a place is available.

If you would like to apply for a nursery place, please contact school on 0151 522 5748.

At Greenbank we offer these hours as either 5 x mornings or 5 x afternoon sessions:

AM sessions run from 8:45am to 11:45am and PM sessions run from 12:30pm to 3:15pm
