Why visit?

A great deal can be learnt about a school by speaking to current parents and pupils you may know, reading a prospectus and visiting our website but nothing equals the value of a visit. At our open events you can talk to the leadership team, teachers and pupils to discover exactly what our school is like and what it can offer your family. Admissions Manager Mrs Christine Phillips is on hand to answer questions about the admissions process and discuss next steps.



Please arrive as close to 10:00 am as possible to ensure you make the most of your visit.

There is limited on-site car parking available for our open events.  Alternatively you may wish to park in Arboretum Road (2 hours restricted free parking) or Buchanan Road (free all day, residential parking), both of which are within a short walking distance from school.

Upon arrival please make your way to the registration area on arrival to register your name and contact details, or confirm your attendance if you have pre-registered.


A tour guide will be assigned to your group and show you round school. Tour guides are primarily pupils: the head boy, head girl and prefects from our Senior School and house captains and vice house captains from the Prep School.
