Please feel welcome to visit St Luke’s to see if we are right for your child:

Friday Assemblies
Attending a Friday assembly will give you a real sense of the ethos of the school. This is a celebratory assembly with singing, awards and pupils’ full participation. Great fun and you don’t need to book – just turn up on a Friday afternoon.

Monthly School Tour
With members of staff, parents and families are invited in small groups to tour the school to see a normal morning in class. These run each month – the last Friday of the month. Please book through our Reception at St Luke’s School

Informal Chats
Members of Senior Leadership Team see several parents each week, spending an hour or so to listen and talk about individual children and ways we may be able to support parents in making decisions as to whether St Luke’s is the right school for them. Please book through the school office.
