We would like the chance to show you our friendly, successful school. We have two Open Mornings on Thursday 12th October 9.30 - 11.30 and Wednesday 15th November 9.30 - 11.30.

These usually last 45mins-1hr including time for questions. Please telephone the school office on 01245 472686 for an appointment. We look forward to seeing you!
