As we aren’t able to invite large numbers of visitors in to the school currently we invite you to enjoy a virtual open experience.
You can hear from our Head and Head of Junior School, pupils and other members of staff as well as enjoying a look around the school through short films and zooming around 360˚ images. We are also able to arrange for you
to meet key members of staff that you would like to talk to via Microsoft Teams at a time that works for you. Please do get in touch with us to find out how to take part.
