School Tours for prospective parents starting September 2021

If your child is due to start school September 2021 we are going to be holding a number of socially distanced external tours of the school following the government guidelines. 

Tours will be conducted in groups of a maximum of 6 people (including the person conducting the tour). Because of this limit we ask that only one person from each household attends and unfortunately we will be unable to accommodate children as they count in the rule of 6. If you arrive with a child we will not be able to invite you on to site. The tours are also only open to new families that do not already attend the school and have no experience of the site.

Although you are not required to wear a mask please bring one with you should the need arise.


Please note these dates are subject to cancellation should the local situation or government guidance change.


We ask that you do not attend the tour if you display any of the known symptoms or are awaiting Coronavirus test results.


We will be releasing more dates on a weekly basis. Please see dates and times below, if you wish to book a space please email or call the office on 01489 782075 as there are limited spaces on each tour - please make sure you inform us of a telephone number so we can get in contact if we need to.
