School Tours

School tours for prospective families take place every other Thursday (2nd and 4th Thursday of every month, except for school holidays). Our tours take place at 9.30am. On your tour you will be accompanied by our Headteacher Anthony Carmel or a member of the Senior Leadership Team. You will be taken around the whole school building and will have the opportunity to see children learning in the classrooms.
