We work with local nurseries to help provide quality, local childcare provision.

Options while you study

The University recognises that student parents will only leave their children in childcare surroundings that they feel comfortable with. The Gloucestershire Families Directory website contains updated information on childcare providers in the county.

For current or prospective students who have children of school age, the choice of local schools is understandably very important. Within Gloucestershire, children will either be assigned to their nearest state school, or be accepted through a school’s admissions procedure.

To assist student parents with their investigations they are advised to look at the Gloucestershire County Council website for more information on the county’s primary, secondary and special schools.

Some parents may also wish to investigate independent schools.
