Taster Sessions for students

To help pupils decide if they enjoy the level of challenge provided in Grammar Stream, we hold Taster Sessions (for Year 6 and Year 5 students) on subjects such as English, Maths and Languages. These events occur outside school hours, to avoid any disruption to learning.
