We have an array of opportunities for both parents and children to explore the school, meet teachers and current pupils, and get involved in lots of exciting activities along the way.


Whole School Open Morning


Our main event of the year is our Whole School Open Morning, held annually in September

SAVE THE DATE – Saturday 21st September 2024.

Our Open Morning is a fun and informal event jam-packed with information and activities for children of all ages and their parents. It’s a great way to get a feel for the school and learn more about what we have to offer.

There will be current students and staff on hand to answer your questions and lots of fun and educational activities for your children to enjoy. The event is primarily aimed at the families of boys and girls who are thinking of applying to join our school in September 2025, but is of course open to anyone who would like to come and have a look around.

In our Infant School children can take part in our “spot the squirrel” tour to find their way around the classrooms, getting involved in lots of fun activities along the way.

Our Junior School will host an exciting Lego mini-figure trail, with a variety of activities for children to try in each classroom.

Our whole Senior School will be open to explore, with each department offering something exciting to try. Get stuck in with indoor pond dipping in Biology, work with robots in Computing, try Latin scrabble in Classics, watch open rehearsals in Music, and so much more.

Our Sixth Form Centre will also be open to provide a taste for A Level life at the School, and there will be staff and current students on-hand to chat about studying at our Sixth Form.

A special thank you to Mrs Griffiths for making A feel so welcome and the children, namely Teddy for helping him feel so settled”. – Year 3 Parent

“Thank you so much to Mrs Dunn and all of the staff for having J today. He had a great day. He loved the lessons, especially the science lesson, which was very different to what he is used to and he was very excited to do a real experiment!
