Attendance is a key component to your child’s success


We pride ourselves on our smooth and effective transition arrangements.

We have close links with our primary school partners. Regular visits, themed events and activity days are organised. In addition, we hold an Open Evening.  We encourage any prospective parent to arrive without notice to view our school. Seeing a school on a ‘normal’ day is crucial.

For students starting with us in September 2024 – please find below some information to ensure transition takes place as smoothly as possible.  If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact the school on Tel.01270 560514
