Information for Prospective Parents


 September 2021 New Starters


We are having to adopt a different way of working due to the current pandemic situation.  At The Grange children and staff are in class bubbles to restrict interaction between different groups to reduce the risk of transmission. 

Due to the current restrictions we are unable to host our usual Open Evening and tours of our school. Our school brochure reflects the activities that would normally take place with regard to personal visits to our school so you can see how we would routinely operate.

Please make sure that you have completed an Expression of Interest card so that the office can contact you if the situation changes.








What the children say about school:

"The Grange is a wonderful place and I really like it here"

"Maths is good because you get to work things out"

"I like doing writing because sometimes you do short pieces of writing and sometimes you do long pieces"


"You have to use your brain a lot in maths"

"I like The Grange because we've got lots of things outside and our classrooms are nice and tidy"


What visitors say about the school:

"It was very pleasing to perform for the pupils who were loud, enthusiastic and responsive"

"Thank you for the wonderful, happy visit to your lovely school"

"Thank you for such a wonderful event tonight, we thoroughly enjoyed all of the activities and experiences"

"Lovely children, very attentive and inquisitive, some good questions and very well behaved"
