New Nursery Starters

Welcome to Great Heath Academy Nursery

This page has information for our new Nursery families.

Nursery Applications

Your child is eligible to start our Nursery the term after they are three.

Please contact the Academy office for an application form.


You will need to decide if you would like;

  • a part time place for your child – 5 morning sessions or
  • a part time place for your child – 5 afternoon sessions or
  • a full time place for your child – with the additional option of Lunch Club

A full time place is subject to eligibility and an 11 digit HMRC code will be needed. Please check on the website, which can be accessed here.


You will also be required to share your child’s birth certificate with us in order to check their date of birth, alongside the application form.


Applications for our Nursery can be made at anytime.

The Early Years team will be in contact with you the term before your child is due to start.
