Nursery are our youngest pupils, therefore they are referred to as ‘Pioneers’.
Morning Nursery is named Edwards: After Tracy Edwards MBE, who in 1989, skippered the first all-female crew in the Whitbread Round the World Yacht Race. Finishing second, they hold the record for the best result since 1977, the best ever result for an all-female crew and she was the first woman to be awarded Yachtsman of the Year.
Afternoon Nursery is named Peake: After Tim Peake, the first British astronaut to go on board the International Space Station, bearing a British flag patch. He is the first British person to fly into space without a private contract or foreign citizenship and the first Brit to participate in a spacewalk outside the International Space Station (ISS). He was the first man to run the London Marathon from ISS treadmill.
