Chiffchaffs Pre-School

Chiffchaffs is our pre-school class, which opened on January 6th 2020. We are still taking applications for 2, 3 & 4 year olds - please contact the main school reception to arrange a visit.


If you are wondering why the choice of name, it is because the woodland adjacent to the pre-school (where our Forest School is based) has many of these migrant warblers visiting through the spring, summer & autumn. So, for much of the year we will hear their characteristic song all around us.


The photos below give a taste of the spaces that we have for the children to use:

  • A large main room for indoor learning & play
  • An outside space with artificial grass and a wooden playhouse
  • A natural 'mud kitchen' area 
  • A covered outdoor space with a soft play surface
