Thank you for taking the time to visit our website.  At the current time we are not able to offer Open Mornings to view the school.  We will be organising individual school tours from 1 October, these will start with families who are currently on our waiting list who we will contact directly.

Once we have completed the waiting list tours we will take bookings for tours based on the regulations in place at the time.  We will post further details here about how to book in due course.

Best wishes, Rob Watkins.
