The Royal High School Nursery has recently benefited from a brand new room for the girls who attend the facility in Bath. The decision was made to expand the Nursery, which is located in the historic Cranwell House, to offer the girls further opportunities to flourish and develop as independent learners and also to meet the growing demand for places.

The additional room allows the youngest girls at The Royal High School to have a wider variety of choice in terms of learning experiences and also provides a quiet area for focused group work and key worker activities. Josie and Ella in the Nursery love their new room and said, “We like having more space for all our toys and for the computers!”

The exciting new addition to the nursery follows the school’s latest ISI Report, following the inspection in November last year. The Royal High School was awarded ‘excellent’ for both academic and personal development, the highest accolade a school can achieve. In particular, the report judged academic attainment in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) to be ‘very high’ with the ‘well designed, creative activities provided and the close monitoring by the staff’ contributing to this high level of achievement.

The report further found that girls in the EYFS ‘express joy in the natural world’ and that ‘from a young age they take responsibility for their own actions, and as they grow older become increasingly aware that the decisions they take are important determinants of their own success and well-being’.

Head of the Junior School, Miss Heidi Hughes, commented, “I am delighted with the results of our recent inspection reflecting the superb quality of education offered at the school, and in particular the comments in the report highlighting the EYFS setting. With the new spaces now available in Nursery there are exciting times ahead!”

Families are invited to go along the school and see the new nursery for themselves at the EYFS and Junior Open Morning on 8 March. Wmail email hidden; JavaScript is required to book your place.
