The Curriculum

Hurlingham School’s Nursery offers outstanding provision for girls and boys aged two to five in a cutting-edge setting on Gwendolen Avenue in west Putney. The final year emphasises all aspects of school readiness to give children a flying start to their formal education. It includes a one day per week Forest School option.

Games & the Arts

Music, drama and sport are all co-ordinated by specialist staff. The children enjoy regular music, movement, yoga, karate and outdoor learning, including Forest School.

Pastoral Care

‘Pupils are exceptionally well cared for. The school has excellent arrangements in place to ensure that pupils are safe at all times. The school is a kind place where adults are extremely caring and pupils are considerate towards others. A pupil summed this up by commenting: ‘children are kind and we share what we have with one another.’ Ofsted, February 2018.

Recent Scholarships

Exit Schools: Hurlingham Nursery provides an excellent foundation for all children with a particular teaching and learning focus to prepare pupils for learning on the school’s main site on the Putney Bridge Road.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

The Nursery provision at Hurlingham fosters and develops children’s interest in the world around them through initiating a life-long love of learning and academia.

Outstanding Characteristics

An idyllic, small school with large classrooms and lots of scope for self-expression in a nurturing, academic setting. In addition to the three terms in the academic year an additional 16 weeks of holiday club are offered to allow parents to opt in for specific weeks required, without having to financially commit to a full 50 weeks a year. (This excludes a 2-week period over Christmas and Bank holidays outside).
