Why Choose Us?

Entry to Reception in September 2022: open mornings or a virtual visit?

We are now taking appointments for parents of prospective September 2022 Reception pupils to tour the school and meet staff.  During the week commencing 15th November 2021, appointments will be available to take small groups around the school and answer any questions that parents may have.  We have chosen this alternative approach (usually we have just two sessions, attended by large numbers) to keep numbers down and disrupt the pupils less, and also to reduce the potential risk of transmission of COVID.  If attending, we politely ask that you carry out a lateral flow test in advance, again to reduce the risk of transmission.

Open Morning Visits are by appointment only, which can be booked through the office by calling 01702 559467 during school hours.  Thank you.

If you would prefer, there is a virtual visit that last year’s Year 6 School Councillors made. 

Please click the link below to see the 11 minute video made by our pupils.  When asked to be critical about the finished product and what would make it even better, they said it would be perfect if it included a “blooper reel”, so that is attached separately here.
