Open Days


Spring / Summer Open Mornings

Attending one of our summer open mornings is a great, relaxed way to get a feel for the School on a normal working day. Your visit will be regularly punctuated by the school bell and lessons will take place around you. There is a limit to the number of families we can welcome to these events, so advance booking is essential.
