Letter for Year 6


We really enjoy showing our school to prospective parents, so do feel free to call for an appointment to view the school, outside of any advertised ‘open days’. We prefer to show our school in the school day, when the most important people, the children, are in school. You can then see learning taking place! Please contact us for information via the details on the ‘contact us’ page or you can click here.
