This year, our Open Meetings for prospective parents to look around the school are published on the Home page of this site. The sessions are to allow parents to find out more about the Admissions process and the school and to have the opportunity to ask questions. These meetings are not intended for the children, who will be given an opportunity to have some child centred time once places have been allocated.
If you require any help with Admissions please contact the school office who will be happy to help.
