Admissions

Prospective parents are always welcome, by appointment, to visit the school to see the vibrant, happy and caring environment in which our children learn. Your visit will give you the opportunity to find out more about the school, to ask any questions you may have and for you to see first hand why we are so proud of our school and of our children. If you would like to arrange a visit, please call the school office on 01925 813015 and we will be happy to do this for you.
