Activity mornings

Year 1 Activity Morning

This event, held in June, is for children who are in Year 1 for the academic year 2016-2017 and their parents (please note, parents do need to stay for the whole morning). The Activity Morning is based around science, art, music, cookery, PE games and drama, and designed to enable children to be creative and have a good deal of fun. There is also a chance for parents to chat with the Head and his staff and see some current Year 3 work.

Year 2 Taster Morning

We hold a Year 2 Taster Morning every autumn specifically for children who attend schools other than our Pre-Prep, the Pelican, and are thinking about joining the Prep in Year 3 the following September. This year’s taster morning was held on Saturday 12 November. The children work in groups and sample science, PE, art, music and drama activities. It is a great opportunity for them to get to know the School and our staff, and parents can chat with the Head, Director of Admissions, Deputy Head and some current parents.

For more information about our taster mornings or to be added to our database to be reminded about open days please contact Elinor Schneider on 01223 403922 or
