Dates for your Diary:

New Intake Parents’ Evening - Monday 29th June 2020

This parents' evening will provide the opportunity to meet key staff and other girls who will be in the tutor group.  Parents will be given a range of information on how the school operates on a daily basis and arrangements for students' arrival in September.  A full itinerary of the evening will be provided in due course.

Students Taster Day - Wednesday 1st July 2020

All the girls joining us in September are invited on this date for a taster day. It is an opportunity for our new students to really begin to feel like a member of our community as they attend some lessons, meet staff and receive important information needed for September.  Students should come dressed as they would normally for primary school.  They will need to bring a pencil case and watet bottle; lunch will be provided. 

Students need to arrive at the school at 8.25am and will finish at 2.30pm when students can be collected from the playground or be dismissed at the school gate.

Parents and students will be given the opportunity to meet personally with a member of the Senior Leadership Team before the end of this academic year should you require it, so that any specific questions can be addressed.

Base Camp Summer School - To be advised

Base Camp Summer School will run for one week during the summer holidays and is a great chance for our new students to meet some of our staff, make new friends and do some learning.
