Next Steps

Next Steps

If you’re interested in finding out more about our learning community, these are the next steps to take. 

Step 1

Open Morning

Come along to an Open Morning to find out more about us. You’ll get the chance to meet our teachers and students, see our classes and ask lots of questions.

(Optional) Step 1A

Taster Session

One-off Taster sessions are available for our 5-6yrs and 7-10yrs groups AFTER you have attended an open day. You’re very welcome to skip this step and go straight to the next step which is an informal interview.

Step 2

Informal Interview

Book an informal interview using our online form. The interview is a chance for us all to get to know each other better. Students are invited to bring along examples of their work and any questions they may have.

Step 3


A try-out period of between 3 to 6 weeks gives students the opportunity to see if our community feels right for them and gives us time to see if we will be able to meet the student’s needs.

Step 4

Join Us

If the try-out goes well for everyone, the student is invited to join our community. Hooray!
