Our School


Visiting the School

We know that you can only make an informed decision about a school if you see it in action on a normal school day. 

Opening evening - Wednesday 20th September 2023

Our Open Evening is being held on Wednesday 20th September from 5.00pm to 8.00pm. The Headteacher presentations will take place at 5.30pm, 6.30pm and 7.30pm. Also included in the evening is a tour where you can get a feel for the school. We would advise you to arrive in good time as the evening is very popular with prospective parents.


Open days 

Parents will have an opportunity to tour the school with the Headteacher each morning starting at 9am or 9.45am. These tours begin on Thursday 21st September and conclude on Wednesday 25th October. The tour is an opportunity for you to see the school in action and have your questions answered by the Headteacher.
