Open Days

We hold a series of Open Days throughout the year. Both parents and prospective students are welcome to attend  However, it would be very much appreciated if younger siblings did not accompany parents.

Please note that we are not able to accommodate requests for individual visits for day pupils due to the large volume of requests made.
