Prospective Pupils

Senior staff are always pleased to show prospective pupils’ parents the school at work and to hold individual meetings with parents to discuss the philosophy and aims of the school.  Please telephone for an appointment.  We also offer the opportunity to visit the school during our Open Mornings.

Children due to start at the beginning of the new school year, i.e. September, are invited to visit the school during the Summer Term to meet new friends and have a first taste of the class environment.
