While we strongly encourage you to arrange an individual tour of the school for you and your family, coming to one of our open events is also a good idea, offering the ideal opportunity to see our busy, friendly school in full action and get a real “feel” for what makes it special. Our pupils will lead you on a guided tour of the classes and facilities and you will be able to meet the Headmaster, talk to pupils, staff and parents and see the wealth of opportunities we have to offer your son or daughter. Our Registrar will also be on hand to explain our admissions process and answer any questions you may have about joining the school.
If you would like to receive information about events as they are added to the calendar, please sign up to our mailing list.

Parents’ Association and Social Events 2019
The school and the Parents’ Association also hold fun community events during the school year to give families a chance to get to know us and each other and see the Hethersett community in action. Our recent (May 2018) Seaside Summer Fete, for example, proved to be a wonderful day out for all the family and raised funds for the PA to spend on items all our pupils can enjoy.
Forthcoming events are always announced on our news page.
Christmas Fair – Our popular Christmas Fair is always very well attended and offers a huge range of exciting stalls to browse, from crafts to artisan foods…and of course a visit from a certain elderly, bearded gentleman in red! If you would like to have a stall at this event please email firstname.lastname@example.org
