We are really looking forward to being able to share our wonderful school with you and give you an insight into all of the exciting opportunities and resources the children at Keston Primary School and Nursery have access to.

School Visits for Admission to Nursery Class in September 2022

Unfortunately due to Covid-19 we are currently unable to offer in person school tours. We hope to be able to arrange these for later in the Spring and Summer Term.

Please check back here soon for more information.

For those who are unable to visit or who would like some additional information we are delighted to be able to share with you a virtual tour of the school’s Nursery and Reception classes, we hope this, along with our School Council video, our handbook and welcome video, will also provide you with the information you need, to know whether Keston is the right school for you and your child.
