  • Student for a day

    The decision to change schools is an important one – being a Student for a Day is the best way for future students to experience our welcoming and inclusive environment and see what makes us unique.

    During Student for a Day your child will experience our school firsthand, by following a personalised timetable. They’ll spend the day in our classes, mix with our students and learn from our specialist teachers.
