Welcome to our Virtual Open Day
Although we are unable to welcome you in person to look around our beautiful School and meet pupils and staff at the moment, we are delighted to provide you with a variety of specially created resources on this page for you to watch, listen to and read in your own time.
We ask that you begin with the important video addresses made by the Headmaster. We suggest that you then watch the Guided Tour of the campus led by the Head Boy and Head Girl. From there, please click on the links in a pathway of your own choosing for further information in a variety of digital formats.
Should you have any questions arising from any of the information provided, or in relation to a potential application to join us, then please do get in touch via: firstname.lastname@example.org and we shall be pleased to respond to your enquiry.
The Admissions and Entry Procedure for September 2021 is set out in a pdf which may be accessed from a link displayed at the bottom of this page. Please note that our previously published ‘Admissions Guide’ for 2021 has been revised. In particular, you are requested to note the modified arrangements for assessments which will be carried out in January 2021. At the very bottom of the page a link is provided for you to make an online Registration.
We hope you enjoy your visit today!
