Visits to the school

For all prospective reception class children/parents we are currently not doing tours of the school.   We are presently putting together a virtual tour of the school which will be available to view at the end of October.

If parents are wishing to apply for ‘In Year’ places (any application for a place, other than a September reception starter), please be aware that due to the high level of applications we receive, we only offer a school tour once we have confirmed if we are able to offer a place.
