Visits & Open Days

Book your visit and explore the small school with a BIG personality!

Open Days have always been an amazing way to showcase our school, values, and personality. We would still love to show you around our school so that you can get a greater view of what we have to offer your child. Complete our form to arrange a tour or to have a virtual meeting with Mrs Smith, the Headteacher. We look forward to seeing you soon!

 

The school has such a warm and friendly feel and our son has settled in very quickly. The staff have been fantastic and we have been especially impressed with the schools response to COVID.

My daughter runs in happily and comes out tired but smiling every day. Her fantastic attitude to learning is so apparent when she teaches her younger brother to keep trying, or that he can’t do it yet but he soon will if he tries. We really couldn’t ask for more.
