Applications are welcome from parents whose children are likely to make a full and committed contribution to the life of the school, and to benefit from the extensive additional facilities and opportunities.

Working Day Visits 2024

We are again extending our Working Day Visits so that you have more of an opportunity to meet us during the school day, booking details will be available on our website at the beginning of the Autumn Term. They will include a tour of the school and a question and answer session with a member of our Senior Leadership Team and will last approximately an hour.  In order to accommodate the large number of requests to visit us, we ask that only Year 6 students and one parent/carer attend these visits.
