Welcome to a Virtual Visit of our Senior School

Usually, we would be welcoming you in person and serving you refreshments from our award-winning catering team. Instead, we hope that you and your family are able to settle at home with a cup of tea, and enjoy everything that we have put together for you; you will be able to find a number of pre-recorded videos and image galleries to enjoy at your own pace. This webpage will stay live so you can come back and visit us whenever you want to.

Our admissions team will be contacting you soon to answer any questions and offer further opportunities that might be helpful, such as access to our leaflets and a virtual meeting with a key member of staff.

We do hope that you enjoy our Virtual Visit, and that you will be inspired to join us in person at some point in the future.

We will contact you soon to see if there is anything else that you might need. However, you are welcome to email us at [email protected] if you have any questions that you want answered in the meantime; we will be more than happy to help.
