About Kingmoor Nursery & Infant School

At Kingmoor, we offer high quality teaching and excellent progress in a stimulating, caring learning community. We pride ourselves on being a friendly open school where all children try to do their best from the minute they enter school at 3 to when they leave for the Junior School aged 7.

We have 9 classes plus the nursery. Year groups work together and we retain a “small-school feel” that nurtures and supports all children while giving them access to the enriched experiences that only a larger school can offer. Each class is a vibrant exciting, learning centre where the children are challenged in a supportive, caring environment. We are proud of our school and the children’s academic and personal achievements.
