Our school is a place where everyone is known, valued and respected.

Welcome to Headington Quarry Nursery  School. We put the children and families needs at the heart of everything we do. We pride ourselves in meeting the needs of all of our children on their individual journey.

We are very proud to be one of the six maintained nursery schools in  Oxfordshire. We are led by a  governing body, a Headteacher and Early Years teachers/practitoners, all specialists in the Foundation Stage.

We offer government funded places of either 15 or 30 hours (according to the government criteria and with an appropriate elibility code), for children the term after their 3rd birthday  in our Nursery school provision. We also have a daycare facility that is open from 8.00am until 5.30pm. Parents can pay for breakfast care, after school care or to top up a funded place. For children who have just turned 3 we have our daycare facility, parents can pay (by the hour) for this provision. In the holidays and on INSET days we run  holiday daycare for children aged 3-8years old.

Due to current covid-19 guidance, we are unable to offer visits and tours during the school day. Please contact Jo in our school office for alternative arrangements .
