School Tours

We hold tours of our wonderful school to coincide with key admission dates into Nursery and Reception, however, our tour programme for entry in September 2021 will be virtual rather than in person. Please view our wonderful video below. This is so that we can manage social distancing measures that have been implemented in school. 

For in-year admissions, families are invited to visit us once a formal offer of a place has been made by Hertfordshire County Council. Tours are not conducted at any other time of the year.

If you require information about the admissions process, please email our Admissions Assistant howarths@cranborne.herts.sch.uk
