Infant School Open Week for admissions in September 2019 The school will be open during the week for new parents to view the school. Last year there were 700 ‘spare’ primary school places in Southwark. Local housing changes and lower birth rate means spaces are available. Please encourage everyone you know to come visit our school. We need as many children as possible to start in Reception.

You will have to opportunity to view some amazing art work by the children and purchase your child’s framed original work.
