Foundation Stage Intake for September 2021.
Open Day 2020
Due to the current circumstances we are unable to have an Open Day this year for the September 2021 intake. Instead, we have created a Virtual Open Day for you to watch. We hope this video helps you get a feel of our school and what we do here however, if you do have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our school office.
We would have loved the opportunity to show you around our school and we hope you enjoyed the virtual open day video.
We would like to thank Stuart Brown from Reality Surveying for creating this virtual tour of our school.
