Admission to St George’s Nursery 3 – 5 years

Applying for a place in our Nursery


Girls and boys from the age of 3 years are assessed by the Head of Nursery to ensure that they are ready for activities, play, and learning. Communication and social skills are also assessed.

The school welcomes boys into our Ante-Preschool year (3 years) up to the start of our Preschool year (4/5 years).

When to apply

You can apply for a place from birth.  Places are offered by date of application, although we do give some priority to siblings. Some places are available for girls joining us at P1, however, we do advise joining us in Nursery for girls to benefit from a smooth transition from Nursery to P1.

How to apply

Please download and complete the application form below. Please post or email this to our admissions department who will contact you to discuss your application.  There is a non-refundable registration fee of £25 per child to be paid with your application form.

Nursery Admissions Policy

As we are an all-girls school, nursery applications from girls take precedence over boys.

There are two main intakes a year for the nursery: August and January. These are subject to places being available. However, children can also join us at any point through the session, if places are available. For more information please read our admissions policy.

Many of our preschool nursery children move on into Primary 1 and our transition activities are tailored to their needs, however, entry is not automatic. 

A limited number of places are available to girls who join us for P1, so acceptance of a place offered in Nursery is strongly advised.
