Bickerstaffe Lodge Nursery
Bickerstaffe Lodge sits adjacent to the school. Opened in 2011, this custom-built early years education facility is run by our colleagues Bickerstaffe Children's Services Ltd.
BCS is a non-profit company set up in 2005 by parents, with services delivered in the school hall until the new building came into operation. The non-profit status means that a high quality early years service is delivered at affordable rates for 0-3 year olds, while children from 3 years (and from 2 years in certain circumstances) benefit from up to 30 hours per week free education and care.
BCS is currently graded 'good' for its services by Ofsted, and the Inspector found that the stable, mature staff team to be "well-qualified, enthusiastic practitioners who have high expectations of the children". The school works closely with BCS to ensure excellent transition from the early years setting into reception.
