We want your child’s first experience of school to be happy and positive.

Most Tuesday mornings we have a tour for parents who are interested in considering St Stephen’s for their child’s education. The tour gives you the opportunity to meet with Mr Schumm, the headteacher, and see the school in action. Our parent tours are very popular and spaces are limited, so please book ahead. You can do this by telephoning the school office on 020  8743 4483.

Prior to your child starting at St Stephen’s, Nursery and Reception children have a visit morning in the summer term. For Nursery children we ask the parents to stay with them and join in with classroom activities. We encourage Reception children to visit without their parents so that they can experience a typical morning in their class.

Families of Nursery aged children will receive a home visit. This will help your child get to know us in a familiar environment and we will be able to chat with you about any concerns you may have.
