  • Importance notices for your visit:

    Please be patient with our Victorian site!

    It is VERY cold and difficult to heat in winter. We do our best, but it is always a good idea to come with an extra jumper (or two) on!

    Please also note that there are 2 areas (the Gallery Classroom and Victorian Headmaster's House) are step-only access due to their age and original historic design.
