School tours

If your child is starting school in September 2023 and you would like to visit the school for a guided tour from Mrs. Moth, please call or email the school office. We would welcome any visitors who would like to look around the school before applying. 


Who to apply to
All applications for a starting school place in September 2024 must be made to your home authority - this is who you pay your council tax to. If you are unsure if your child lives in Somerset, you can check whether we are your local authority for school admissions here.
