Nursery Admissions

How to apply to Rye Nursery School

Your child’s education starts at Nursery School so choosing what’s right for them is one of the most important decisions you will ever have to make. Our admissions team are here to guide you through every step of the entry process, making it as smooth and stress-free as possible.

Rye Nursery School is situated within the school’s own beautiful 12 acre grounds just off Headington Hill. Our Nursery School children benefit from a dedicated outdoor learning area as well all the facilities the main school has to offer.

Once a child reaches school age they are automatically transferred from Pre School to the Prep School no new application will need to be made – this is a seamless process to allow for smooth transition from nursery to reception to allow you to continue your journey with us.
