Thank you for your interest in our school.

Greenleas School Kestrel Way and Greenleas School Derwent Road supplies Pre-school (2 years+), Nursery (3 and a half years +) and Lower school provision at two sites in Leighton/Linslade. They are run as one school under the leadership of the Head Teacher and share a Board of Governors chaired by Mrs Emily Wilding. Please see our welcome booklet below for more information about our school.

Children can attend Pre-school and Nursery at Greenleas before they start in Reception Year. (60 places at each site). Children are normally admitted to Lower school in the September following their fourth birthday, which is at the start of Reception Year and leave at the end of Year 4, when they are nine. For an explanation of the difference between Pre-school, Nursery and Reception please click to see our explanation document.

Our Admissions Policy is available here, including details of the criteria we use to offer places in our Pre-school and Nursery.
