The Aquila School welcomes you to meet the Principal and the Head of Primary personally, and for parents to join our regular information sessions to see what makes The Aquila School so unique.
Meet the Principal and Head of Primary
Every week we run tours between 8.30am to 9.00am unless the time is stated otherwise below, these start in the school reception. The tour is for prospective parents wanting to view the school, and is led by the Principal and the Head of Primary. Sign up using the form, and let us know your preferred date, or drop in on the day.
If would prefer to meet with our Principal and Head of Primary by appointment, you are welcome to contact us and we will schedule a time that suits you.
We know how busy family life can be, so we are happy to meet on weekends and evenings to make it easier for you.
We look forward to welcoming you to our school and to join in our learning community.
Family Learning at The Aquila School 2019/2020
At The Aquila School we value working closely with families to support pupil learning.
We have therefore arranged a number of workshops during the year to keep families informed of our approach to learning and teaching so that families can support their child at home. Unless otherwise indicated, the workshops are suitable for families of all ages.
We hope you find these workshops helpful and enjoyable.
