Great Denham Primary

Inspiring excellence; everyone, everyday

Admissions and Open Days


Choosing a school for your child is a big decision and one you want to get right. All schools are different so it is important that you choose the one that feels right for your family. Unfortunately, during these difficult times, we are not able to have parents visit the school in the usual way. However, we appreciate that you would want to see our school before potentially choosing it for your child.

We, therefore, plan to host a series of small group tours with either myself or Miss Neale (Assistant Head for Early Years). The tours will take place in groups of 5 adults and will take place after school hours. I am afraid we cannot have children visit at this time only adults. Please wear a face mask when you come on a tour.

When you look around our school it will look a little different from what it normally looks like so you may like to watch the video on the link below to get a flavour of what Great Denham is all about.
