Welcome to the Wheatley Nursery School Website

Welcome to Wheatley Nursery School. We put the children and families needs at the heart of everything we do. We pride ourselves in meeting the needs of all of our children on their individual journey.

 We are a welcoming and inclusive school. Governors, staff and families are committed to working together to provide a high quality approach to education and care for young  children. We believe every child matters and strive to provide rich experiences that support each child’s unique  development based on early childhood principles. 

At Wheatley Nursery School our vision is that through everything we do we are:

  ‘ Igniting the spark to become inquisitive learners for life’

         ‘To know more, to remember more, to achieve more’

We are very proud to be one of the six maintained Nursery Schools in  Oxfordshire. We are led by a  governing body, a Headteacher and Early Years teachers/practitioners, all specialists in the Foundation Stage.

Our school is in a collaboration with Headington Quarry  Nursery School, the two schools share a headteacher. Currently, each school has its own governing body.

Headington Quarry Nursery School


We offer government funded places of either 15 or 30 hours (according to the government criteria and with an appropriate eligibility code), for children the term after their 3rd birthday  in our Nursery school provision. In Little Windmills our provision for 2 year olds, we offer funded places and fee paying places. 

We recognise that starting nursery is a child’s first experience of education and that children’s earliest experiences of learning lay the foundations necessary for them to become confident in themselves as learners for their whole lives. There are many opportunities to ensure that while your child is at nursery, we get to know them and you and everyone else who is important to them.

If you would like to come and look around our high quality learning environment then please contact Anna on the email address below to arrange this. We look forward to welcoming you.
