Queens Park Primary School

A decision was made at Brighton & Hove City Council’s Children, Young People and Skills Committee on 19 June 2017 to raise the lower age range of Queen’s Park primary school from three to four years, and to close the nursery class. This will take place with effect from 1 September 2017.

The reason for the decision was the low numbers of children on roll, which means that the nursery classes are not financially sustainable, and the consequent pressure this puts on the rest of the school budget.
