Big Playgroup

Chillingham Road has a part time Big Playgroup.

This offers children in Nursery the opportunity to take 30 hours if required and can provide a step up towards Nursery for our older playgroup children. Children are admitted three times a year at the start of each term (September, January and May). Applications for Big Playgroup need to be made directly to the School. Admissions forms are available from the school office or from our website.

Children attend all day Monday, Tuesday and on the Wednesday morning.  Children are admitted each September. Applications for the Nursery need to be made directly to the School. Admissions forms are available from the school office or from our website and need to be returned to us before the admissions closing date which is the end of the week prior to the Easter holidays.  Details of the admission policy and process can be found on our website.

Reception

Chillingham Road has a 30 place Reception Class.

Applications for reception places need to be made to Newcastle City Council. Unfortunately, a place in Nursery does not guarantee a place in reception. Families will receive information from the Council regarding the application process. Details of the admission policy and process can be found on our website.
