This Agreement outlines the school’s ethos, policies, and expectations, fostering a nurturing learning environment. The deposit demonstrates the family’s commitment to enrolment, aiding the school in resource planning for an exceptional educational experience.

4) Settling in and welcome events

Parents and children will be invited to welcome events and settling in sessions as their child’s start date approaches.


We were absolutely delighted with the experience our two oldest daughters had at Ursuline Pre-School. The teachers are warm, energetic and plan incredibly engaging days for the children. My daughters were very well prepared for entering Reception and had a lot of fun along the way. We particularly valued the outside space, the way the children learnt so much through play, and the general environment of the School – positive, nurturing and ambitious. We very much look forward to our youngest child starting at Ursuline Pre-School next year.”

Our child has loved every moment of Ursuline Pre-School.  The teaching staff are exceptionally caring and nurturing.  Without doubt, they foster numeracy, literacy, social and other essential skills- but it is done with creativity and fun.  The Pre-School is a very special place.”
