We love caring for children and helping families to navigate the challenges of early parenthood. We’re incredibly proud of the home-from-home nursery experience we offer; our families know their children will be safe and happy in the care of our kind and experienced staff. For a nursery with a big heart, there’s nowhere quite like Hallfield.
An outstanding nursery
Hallfield First Nursery has been rated “Outstanding” in our most recent inspection conducted by the Independent Schools Inspectorate in May 2023.
This inspection assessed the provision of the nursery (a Registered Early Years Foundation setting) in accordance with the requirements of the Ofsted Common Inspection Framework and associated guidance. Hallfield First Nursery was assessed against the following five criteria:
• Overall effectiveness: the quality of the early years provision
• Quality of education
• Behaviours and attitudes
• Personal development
• Leadership and management
Achieving an OUTSTANDING judgement in every area of inspection is very hard to achieve for any early years setting, so I am absolutely delighted, but not surprised by this outcome. As Head Master, I am enormously proud to lead such a dedicated team of professionals throughout the school, and this judgement is testament to the talented Nursery and Early Years Team we have at Hallfield and the highest levels of care and education we provide the children who come here.

Why Hallfield Nursery?
We welcome children to our nursery from 3 months old. However, families must commit to the school from Reception, before they can join the nursery, where places are offered on a first come, first serve basis.
