Magdalen Gates Nursery is a fantastic space for children aged 3 and 4 years old, situated within the Early Years wing of the main school building.

Our carefully planned Curriculum ensures that each child explores the 7 areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage through a child-led curiosity approach.

Our Nursery is run and managed by fully qualified Early Years teachers.


The Nursery works closely with Magdalen Gates Primary Schools Reception class, sharing some story time and continuous provision. Building this relationship early in a child’s nursery experience ensures an easy transition if you choose to send your child to Magdalen Gates Primary School in the future.

Please be aware that attendance at Magdalen Gates Nursery does not guarantee a space in the main school.
