School Tours for Reception September 2021 starters

We would usually welcome prospective applicants for Reception places to join us for visits and tours in the Autumn prior to children starting school – we know how important it is for parents to get a feel of the school that they would like their child to attend.

We were pleased to welcome a number of prospective parents (and pupils) to tour the school during the October half-term break and had already taken a number of bookings for possible future tours.

Unfortunately, with Kent being placed in Tier 4 from 20th December and now in lockdown it will not be possible for us to hold any further tours for prospective parents before applications close on 15th January.  We apologise for any disappointment and inconvenience this may cause but we hope that you appreciate why we feel this is a necessary measure for everyone’s health and safety.

In the meantime, please find below a copy of the information that would have been shared at the presentation to parents during the tour and also our prospectus, which contains lots of other information.  Please do contact us if you have any further queries, we would be happy to hear from you.

Children transfer to secondary school the September following their 11th birthday.
