Tours for September 2023 Prospective Parents

Dear prospective parents, we are delighted to be able to support you over the coming months as you make important decision about your child’s future schooling.

We are aiming to run our school tours and open mornings in the usual way. We know how important this time is for you and we are keen to show prospective parents around our school and for you to meet key staff in person. Tours of our school will operate in the following way: 

  • Tours will take place with the Headteacher or Deputy Headteacher in groups of no more than 10 adults 
  • Children are welcome, we believe it is important that they get that first sight of their possible setting however we ask that they are strictly supervised at all times
For anyone who is unable to or would rather not visit our school in person we will be able to provide an opportunity for you to talk to a member of staff about our school and our website will give you a good flavour of what we are about.
