Applying for a Primary School (September 2021)
Choosing the Right School for your Child
When applying for a primary school, the most important thing is to ask yourself, 'Would my child be happy here?' and we would certainly encourage you to bring your child with you when visiting. Different schools suit different children and the location and size of the school will also be a consideration to you.
Over the course of the November, we hold tours for prospective parents (and their children) to come and visit our school and these can be booked by contacting the school office on 01227 830276.
