Specialist Lessons Nursery

Along with our fantastic grounding in fundamental education areas, Hamilton College's Nursery also has a range of specialist lessons and additional learning to further complement what they learn in a classroom setting.

Extended Learning


The children participate in a music and movement session with our specialist music teacher in the Junior School Music room.

Physical Education (PE)

The children enjoy a weekly Physical Education session with our specialist PE teacher. This session takes place in our well-equipped school games hall, extends the children’s gross motor skills and encourages cooperation and teamwork.


Children have the option of attending weekly French and weekly Spanish lessons. These classes are delivered by a Junior School modern language specialist and is supported by Nursery staff by conversing with the children in informal ways throughout the week.  

Library visits

The children visit the school library each week. During their visit the children are able to browse and choose a book to take home. They also enjoy storytelling with the School Librarian and spend time discussing their stories.

Junior School Assembly

The Nursery children join the Junior School children twice a week for an Assembly.  In Assembly we are together as a school community to promote positive behaviour, develop and understand our Christian Ethos, and celebrate achievements.

Forest School

We are fortunate that we have two members of staff who are qualified to deliver the Forest School Programme.  This takes place once a week in a risk assessed area of forest on the grounds of Hamilton College.
