Coming to live nearby?

We understand the extra complexities for families relocating to North Somerset or Bristol. Having supported many others in successfully relocating, both from elsewhere in the UK, and further afield, there’s a number of ways we can help.

Here’s just a few examples of how we can help:

  • We’ll fit with your schedule to arrange online meetings, allowing you to discover our school and talk to key members of staff.
  • We can offer personalised tours, even during the weekend if that’s better for you.
  • We’ll match you with a local family who can help introduce you to the area as well as other families who have successfully relocated.
