2021 Autumn Term:
We really hope that we can return to our normal working open morning format once government guidelines state that we can allow groups of visitors into the school. In the meantime, we do hope you will join us on a tour and register for the virtual live Q&A and virtual open events taking place this term.
Our admissions team are on hand, just as they always have been, to answer any questions you may have.
