We ask all those attending tours complete, and bring evidence of, a negative Lateral Flow Test. This will be required before you can participate.

Please take a moment to view the Welcome Video below which offers additional information to our promotional video that can be found at the top of the page. Please note that Mrs Breen's section contains some out-of-date information regarding Teddy Bear's Picnic and August events as her section is what was recorded for families last year. Whilst her main sentiment remains the same, the dates do not. The dates and events to note are highlighted in Mrs Coleshill's section and can also be found in the letter above as well as the Welcome and Information Booklet below.
