Planned Events – September 2021 Intake

Open Evening and Open Mornings

Ordinarily, at the start of every academic year, we hold an Open Evening which provides you and your child with the opportunity to meet with staff, have a guided tour of the school and engage with many activities and presentations.  We also host Open Mornings which allow you to visit and tour the school during a typical school day.  Tours are typically provided by our students who are always keen to meet prospective families and chat about their experiences at school; we believe they are our best ambassadors!

Unfortunately, due to the current health situation relating to COVID-19, it may not be possible for our planned Open Evening and Open Mornings to take place in our usual format.  We are, instead, currently exploring the option of a Virtual Open Event.

Further details will be published on our website and to primary schools shortly.


IT Test: 10 October 2020

The scheduled date for the IT test currently remains unchanged, however due to the current health situation and to comply with ongoing government guidelines, arrangements to the test day are constantly under review to ensure the safety of all parties involved.

Updates relating to the ICT Test will be published on the school website (Admissions Year 6 to 7 September 2021 Intake page).

Please ensure that you submit your Supplementary Information Form (SIF) to the school no later than 02 October 2020 either by post or email to:  (for the attention of Mrs Barton/Admissions Officer).


If you have any questions regarding the above events or the admission process, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Barton, Admissions Officer.
