Open Morning

Opening Morning is held once a year, usually in the Autumn Term and gives families the chance to visit the school in an informal setting and the opportunity to meet with staff and pupils.  The next Open Morning date is:

  • Saturday 10 October 2020 09.30 – 12.30

In light of Covid-19, attendance at Open Morning is by appointment only this year. Staff and students will be on site to give a socially distanced guided tour and  minibuses will be available to transport visitors should it be required, between our Junior, Senior and Sports Ground sites.

To book a visit, please email, alternatively call Nicki Giles, Registrar who will be happy to book your visit.

Open Days

Open Days are held regularly throughout the year and give families the chance to have an informal look around the School within a normal working day and to meet the Headmaster/Head of Junior School and other Senior members of staff.  There is no need to pre-book, however, in order that you are guaranteed an opportunity to meet with key members of staff, at a time convenient to yourself, we would recommend registering prior to the day.
