Our Open Evening for 2021 admission

Our annual Open Evening is a chance for prospective pupils and their families to see our school in action. With exciting displays, in-class demonstrations and activities, it is a great opportunity to meet our pupils and speak to members of our staff in detail about learning and just what we have to offer. Due to the ongoing Covid-19 circumstances, this year, prospective parents will not be able to visit the school. Instead, our Open Event has been held online.

If you have missed this event, please contact the school office who can answer any questions you may have.
