Open Mornings 2021 

 Due to the the cancellation of our on-site Open Evening, we have extended our Open Morning tours to run over the course of two weeks. Commencing on Monday 27 September 2021 at 09.00 am and running daily until Friday 8 October 2021.

Our open morning tours are one hour long and provide an ideal opportunity to view the facilities we have on offer and gain a valuable insight into the day-to-day life of the school. During your tour, our existing students will be engaged in their Period 1 lessons and members of our Senior Leadership team will be on hand to answer any questions you may have.

Unfortunately, due to limited space, we are currently unable to extend the invitation to students in Year 5 and below. However, we plan to offer a schedule of tours for parents of students in Year 5 in the spring term of 2022.

 

Booking

We will be operating tours over 10 days in total.

Tickets are restricted to a maximum of 2 tickets per family - this allocation should include 1 adult and 1 Year 6 student. Unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate siblings or other family members outside of the two ticket allocation, due to limited spaces being available.

All tickets will include the opportunity to visit Admissions at the end of your tour.

Places must be pre-booked through the Eventbrite system via the link below:

Registration will open at 09.00 am Thursday 23 September 2021 and bookings for each tour can be made up to 5.00pm the evening before.

Waiting lists will be available subject to demand.

 

Cancellation

Due to high demand and limited spaces, we kindly ask that you cancel your booking if you are unable to attend so that the space may be offered to someone on our waiting list. This can be done by selecting the “manage booking” option within your Eventbrite confirmation.

 

Arrival

Please arrive promptly on-site by 08.45 am and make your way off-site by your designated departure time.

Parking is available on site. Please access the site via the main gate. Staff will be on hand to direct you.

Please make your way directly to the Main Reception, located in F Block where your booking will be registered. Here, you will also have the opportunity to collect our current prospectus and admissions information.

Please ensure that you have your booking information ready which should include the QR code which you will receive in your booking confirmation.

Tours will follow a strict one-way system around the school and we ask that you follow your designated route.

 

COVID-19 Mitigations

All internal spaces will be well ventilated and routes are in place so that corridors do not become over-crowded. We also kindly ask that all visitors take a lateral flow test if possible and wear face coverings throughout your visit, unless you are exempt. Please do not attend if you are currently experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms.

We appreciate your understanding and co-operation during these extraordinary time and we look forward to seeing you.
