We are very excited to have this opportunity to show our school in operation on a normal working day and in the process, show how proud we are of all our pupils and colleagues. It is an Open Event where you can come along at any time from 9.00am till 11.00am (last tour of school) to view our school and where our proud prefects will give you a short tour of the school. Prefects will then show small groups around our school. After which you are welcome to join the Headteacher, other members of the Senior Leadership Team and Admission colleagues in the KS2 shared area, Lower School building, to answer any questions you may have.
You are welcome to enter classrooms and sit in on lessons. We ask you please, not to interrupt a lesson but enjoy observing. Please note that in a few cases, it may not be appropriate to enter a classroom owing to the nature of the work or assessment being done. The Pupil Guides will let you know if this is the case.
