Open mornings

If you are interested in applying for a place at our school we would be delighted to meet you.  Our policy is ‘every day is an open day‘. Due to current CV19 social distancing guidance we are welcoming parents individually.  Please contact the school office to arrange an appointment to visit the school.   We ask that you meet us by the large playing field gate to avoid entering the main school building.  We look forward to meeting you!
