Tours of the School for Parents of New Pupils

Deciding on a school for your child is an important decision for parents and we welcome visits to see our school in action and to ask any questions that you might have.

If you would like to come and see us, please phone the office to make an appointment. We restrict the numbers of parents visiting on each occasion to ensure that tours of the school are informative and parents can ask questions informally. We look forward to welcoming you!
