We appreciate the complexity involved in choosing a suitable school for your child and we endeavour to provide you with all the assistance required to make an informed decision.
Throughout the year, we schedule dates for dedicated tours of the Prep and High School which are advertised on the website, on our social media pages and in the press. However, if these dates do not suit you, please contact us and we will arrange for you to have an individual tour of the school.
