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.  Tours must be booked in advance.  Please telephone a member of the Admissions team on 0118 933 5806.
