Personal visits

While open events and experience days provide an excellent introduction to the School, we also welcome prospective parents to visit us at any time for a personal meeting with Dr Norris (Head), Mrs Sly (Head of Primary School) or Miss Stebbings (Head of Sixth Form) to discuss the individual needs of your child and address any questions you may have.

  • Contact us to arrange a personal visit using the form below.

Taster days

Once Registered we can arrange a special taster day for prospective pupils where they will buddy-up with a current pupil and take part in lessons and activities that are part of the normal school day. It’s a great opportunity to spend time with the relevant year group, start to make friends, get to know the way around School, meet teachers and see how the school day runs.
