Choosing a school is one of the most important decisions you will ever make and you will naturally wish to find out as much information as possible. Usually a member of the Senior Management Team will lead a regular school tour during the autumn term, however, unfortunately, due to the Covid Pandemic this is not currently possible. We would be delighted to meet you via Zoom, share photographs and presentations of our wonderful school or simply speak on the phone. Please telephone the school office on 020 8445 4693 if you are considering applying to our school or would like to discuss a virtual experience.  In these difficult times we will try our best to help you make the right decision for your child.
