Nerrols Primary School and Nursery is a new free School which opened in September 2019.  The school initially opened with two classes – one Reception class offering 30 spaces and one mixed Year 1 and Year 2 class offering 15 places in Year 1 and 15 places in Year 2.  Each September the school has grown as a new intake of Reception children join the school.

In the 2021/2022 academic year, we have a Reception class, a Year 1 class, a Year 2 class and a mixed Year 3 / 4 class.

If you are considering applying for a place at Nerrols, we would be delighted to speak to you and arrange a tour of the school. Please contact the school office on 01823 792655.
