Nursery & Reception Open Mornings

At Hatherop Castle School, we know that happy, stimulated and engaged children thrive. This is why creative learning is at the core of everything we do at our year-round Nursery and throughout the Pre-prep.

Come and see this in action at one of our Nursery & Reception Open Mornings. You will get to see our children working independently and in groups with child-led play and teacher-led learning. You will be invited to take a tour with one of our upper school pupils and visit our Nursery and Pre-prep which sits in 22 acres of glorious landscaped grounds, including two Forest School areas, giving our children endless opportunities to explore, investigate and have adventures with their friends.

The moment a child joins the Hatherop family, they embark upon an adventure in which they will lay the foundations for all future learning. With the help of our classrooms in the Castle, on-site Forest School, and highly dedicated teaching staff, Hatherop Castle School is a natural choice to begin your child’s learning journey. 

If you are unable to attend one of our Open Mornings but would still like to visit, we would be delighted to welcome you to Hatherop Castle at a time that suits you for a tour with the Headmaster, Nigel Reed.
