Snapshot mornings at Knighton House – Tuesday 8th November 2016

Knighton House School has introduced a series of ‘visitor snapshot mornings’ in 2016. These mornings are designed so visitors can experience a view of everyday life at Knighton House School as well as see the great work that takes place all the time.

More frequent opportunities to visit the school, which are tailored to smaller numbers, make these a more personal experience for you and allow you to see a typical morning at the school.

As well as a tour of the school in action you will have the chance to meet the head and chat to the pupils.

Headmistress Sarah Wicks said: “With the snapshot mornings you can see the quality of experience that every day at the school provides for our pupils.”

Book in on one of the following dates to see for yourselves by emailing admissions@knightonhouse.co.uk
