Alexander First School is situated on the west side of Windsor looking out on to rural surroundings. The school is classified as small with approximately one hundred and twenty pupils at present.
All staff are dedicated to ensuring pupils make progress in their learning whatever their starting point and have high expectations of them. We have a nurturing approach to learning across the school, so that all children feel valued and are supported to develop their self-esteem and confidence.
We understand that as a parent, sending your child to nursery is a big step and choosing the right setting is possibly one of the most important and emotional decisions you will make during these precious early years. At Alexander First School, we join in fully with the Nursery curriculum and pride ourselves on the high quality and welcoming nature of our nursery, giving children an enjoyable and enriching experience from day one to support their healthy development.
The sessions for three year olds are Monday to Friday 08.50 – 11.50 or 12.15 – 3.15 subject to spaces being available. We offer 30 hours funded spaces as well as 15 hours funded spaces.

Alexander First School and Foundation Stage is a community school, which receives Local Authority funding. Children normally start their education in our Foundation Stage.
Children start FS1 at the beginning of the term following their third birthday.
Children start FS2 in the September of the year they will be 5 years old.
The Foundation teachers & Head teacher are responsible for admissions into FS1. The Local Authority Admissions Department is responsible for all admissions into the rest of the school.
Children entering FS2 will be accepted in September for the school year. Parents can defer a place until the child is statutory school age.
Both the Foundation Stage and the local authority have an agreed set of criteria for allocating places. These can be found in our Admissions Policy and on the RBWM website.
Sometimes Foundation Stage vacancies become available mid-term and the Foundation teachers & Head teacher manage this scenario with the Admissions Committee of the Governing Body when necessary.
Applications for FS1 can be obtained from the school office.
School applications are obtained from the Admission Department at the Town Hall in Maidenhead. Via: -
