It is a filter nursery not only for St James’s Primary School but also for schools in the local area.  In St James’s Nursery Unit we aim to provide a happy, welcoming, stimulating and fun environment, where each child is valued and respected as an individual, encouraged to grow in confidence and self esteem and to develop to his/her full potential.


Our Nursery Unit is a spacious and attractive environment located in a separate building within the school grounds. Our Nursery Unit is teacher led and staffed by a dedicated and highly motivated nursery team.
