Choosing a secondary school is one of the most important decisions you make with your child. We welcome visits to the school and it is possible to make individual appointments to see the school on a working day at almost any time of the year. Your visit would normally start at 9.00am and would last for an hour. Please contact the school office, where we will be happy to make you and your child an appointment.

If your child was born between 1 September 2008 and 31 August 2009 they will be due to transfer to secondary school in September 2020.

All school admissions are dealt with by your local County Council, for any help with getting a place you should contact them directly.
