School Visits

For Nursery and Reception applications the school holds a number of tours. The tour begins with a talk from our Headteacher, Mrs Cole, in the school hall and is followed by a walk around the school with Mrs Cole or a member of the Senior Leadership Team.  Please be aware that these tours are very popular coming up to admissions deadlines so we recommend you book early!  Numbers are restricted so that the disruption to the school is kept to a minimum.  These tours are for adults only so please arrange childcare before booking your appointment.  Please note that the school car park is for staff only, please park considerately on the nearby roads. If you require a parking space due to disability, please contact the school office in advance.
