Open Evening and Tours in 2020

Sadly we are unable to run our usual Open Evening this year, and are no longer able to offer individual tours. We know how important it is to see the secondary school you are thinking of choosing so will be launching a virtual tour by the end of this week (by 9th October) - this will be posted here on our website. Our promotional film above and information on our website and Facebook page will give you a good flavour of the school in the meantime.
