The Pod Nursery

The Pod is our outstanding nursery setting within St. Gregory the Great Catholic School. This is where our youngest children are educated and nurtured until they move on to the reception class the September after they turn four years old.
The nursery was purposely refurbished and opened in January 2015. We were extremely pleased that the hard work and commitment to providing the best start for our children was recognised in the settings very first Ofsted inspection, when we were graded outstanding in November 2016.

We offer funded early years education for children from the term after their third birthday, and to eligible children the term after their second birthday. There is also the possibility of paying for extra sessions or for younger children to attend.

We operate a waiting list system in order to fairly allocate our nursery spaces but do currently have spaces for funded 2 year olds. If you would like to register your interest you can do so by emailing
