Prospective parent tour dates

The tour dates for the academic year 2025/26 have not been set yet. This page will be updated with new dates as soon as they have been agreed.

 

 As a school, it’s important to make sure that prospective parents and their children feel welcomed and supported as they explore the possibility of joining our school community. Hosting tours of our school is an excellent way to showcase the great things our school has to offer and to provide a glimpse into what daily life looks like for our students.

 

For parents looking to enroll their children in our nursery or reception classes in September 2024, we will be offering tours of our school. During these tours, parents will have the opportunity to meet our teachers, see our classrooms, and learn about the curriculum we offer. Our staff will be on hand to answer any questions parents may have and to provide more information about the admissions process.

We understand that choosing a school for your child is a big decision, and we want to make sure that parents feel confident in their choice. Our tours are designed to give parents a comprehensive look at what we have to offer, and we hope that they will leave feeling excited about the possibility of joining our school community.
