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.  Instead we have created a number of resources, designed to give you a tour and introduction to our school.
