Tours & Events

School Alive Tours

School Alive Tours are usually held once a term and are an opportunity for prospective students and their families to tour the school on a normal school day. Tours are scheduled for 9.30am, and each family is assigned a pair of students who take great delight in conducting a tour of their school.

The tours generally take up to an hour although this is totally dependent on the visiting family – if more or less time is required, this is accommodated. Families are free to visit classrooms and are able to observe classes in progress. On these mornings, senior staff members including Heads of Schools are available to meet with visiting families and answer questions and address concerns.

The tours are followed by a meet and greet with the Principal or the Head of Campus who will give an address to those in attendance, presenting an opportunity for visiting families to have an informal chat with these staff members if they require.
