School Tours

School Tours are conducted by either the Director of Admissions, Mrs Jarrett or the Admissions Manager, Ms Fernandes during the course of a normal school day. The tours are for small groups of a maximum of six families, and it is suggested that parents attend without their children. Tours start at 10:30am and last for approximately 2 hours, concluding in the Headmaster’s office, where parents will have an opportunity to raise any general questions over coffee or tea. These tours are aimed at parents seeking places for 2018 and whose sons are not already registered for entry.
