Our Nursery School
New Bridge in the community

New Bridge  can accommodate 120 children at one time between the ages of 3years and 5 years.  We offer 15hrs and upto 30 hrs  free nursery education and the opportunity for paid wrap around childcare between 8.00am and 4.30pm. Term Time Only.

We are close to the border of Oxfordshire and Reading serving a mixed catchment area with a supportive community. We occupy an early 20th Century primary school building, leased to Reading Borough Council by the Diocese of Oxford. Many adaptations and updates have been made to the buildings and classrooms to meet the needs of younger children and improve staff facilities. 


Hall Hire - we support many charities, particularly with a focus on children's needs. Local services currently using our spacious hall include: 'Stitches in Reading' (sewing classes), Pregnancy Yoga, Mindfulness Training and Thames Valley Gay Chorus choir.

If you are interested in hiring our hall on a regular basis you are more than welcome to come and pick up leaftets in our reception or contact our School Business Manager, email:
