COVID-19: Protecting the health and well-being of our children and staff, and their families, is our highest priority.  We continue to follow government advice and are therefore currently unable to welcome visitors into school.  We hope to resume visits soon.

You can also experience our Virtual Open Day, watch our video or view our 360° tour.  We would also be very pleased to chat with you on the telephone or arrange a Teams video meeting if you have questions about any aspect of the school.

Early Years Activity Sessions

These events are for children who would join Reception in September 2021 to attend with a parent or guardian.  We will offer places in Reception on a first come first served basis to registered children who have attended one of these events.  We have cancelled events due to take place in January and February and will arrange new dates as soon as this is possible.

Toddler Time

These events are for children aged 1 – 3, who will be joining Nursery, to attend with a parent, with plenty of toys, games, and activities to enjoy with your child.  Led by Miss Compton, our Nursery Leader, these events are a great way to build familiarity with the school and our staff for children who may join the Nursery or Reception. Dates for this term have been cancelled due to lockdown and we will resume with weekly Toddler Time events every Friday during the summer term.
