RECEPTION INTAKE 2021/2022

This year, we are not able to host the open days that we usually would, which unfortunately means that we are unable to meet all of our prospective parents and answer your questions in person. We have put together some information on this page, along with a form for you to post any questions that you do not currently have the answers to. We will then share these and keep this page updated with Frequently Asked Questions.

Thank you for your interest in our school and for taking the time to find out more about us. We look forward to meeting some of you in the near future.
