Tours of our campus:

Your family group will tour our campus with your individual student guide who will be happy to answer any questions, along with the staff you will meet on your way around the campus. All tours will be socially distanced and will follow a prescribed, one-way route. We would ask that you stay with your guide and in your family group at all times.

Please note that you may not be able to enter all rooms/areas and you will not be able to touch any of the books or equipment, but staff will be happy to show you examples of work where appropriate. Unfortunately, not all subject teachers will be available to talk to you on the night as we will be operating the evening using a skeleton staff, to maintain as much social distancing as possible.

Exiting our campus:

Your individual student guides will take your family group to the relevant exit point at the end of your tour where you will be asked to sanitise your hands again.

Please then make your way back to your vehicle and leave the campus promptly. Our staff will be on hand to assist you.
