Heymann Primary & Nursery School

Inspiring and motivating our children
to be the best they can be


Heymann Primary School opened a brand new nursery (Pre-School) in January 2014. The Nursery (pre-school) is in a purpose built classroom in our Infant building and has its own enclosed outdoor play area.

There are many advantages to using our school based nursery:

  • Outdoor play area with brand-new equipment
  • Access to all the school equipment and facilities – interactive whiteboard, large school hall, sensory room, library.
