Prospective parent tours 2020/2021
During the Prospective parent tours, small groups will, be shown around the school but, the focus will be more on the Reception classes with the opportunity to meet the Reception staff and ask any questions that you may have.
Dates to be confirmed
Open Showcase Evening To be confirmed
During the Open Showcase Evening small groups will be shown around by some of our Year 6 pupils together with staff members including class teachers, Learning Mentors and the Senior Leadership Team. This is more of an opportunity to speak directly with the children to find out what they think about the school and, of course, to ask more detailed questions of the staff. In addition you can sample school meals and find out more about the Breakfast and After School Clubs.
There is no need to book for any event - just turn up. You can attend as many events as you like and bring your child(ren) to as many as you feel you would like.
