Open Afternoons

Our open afternoon for admission into Reception for September 2020 will be on Wednesday 20th November at 1.30 pm. Unfortunately we have had to cancel the 6th November due to national training for the head teacher. The afternoon will begin with a presentation from Miss Leonard, the Head teacher and followed by a tour of school by Year 6 pupils. These afternoons are for parents only. Please contact the school office to book a place onto either afternoon.

Please contact the school office on 0113 2828182 to book an appointment on either of these dates. We look forward to meeting you and your children.
