Virtual Open Day

"Welcome to our ‘Virtual Open Day’ page.

We are very proud of the Friars community that breathes life into our wonderful School buildings and have cherished being able to welcome our pupils back through the doors at the start of this term.

When considering whether Friars could be the right environment for your child, we know that the best way to learn about the School, and to fully appreciate our special ethos, is to come and experience it for yourself.

Whilst we are unfortunately not able to tour families during the School day at the moment, we are keen for you to still have the opportunity to discover more about us, and have put together this page of resources which we hope can kickstart your journey to getting to know us from the comfort of your own home. Please do take the time to browse our videos and other content below."

2018/19 Austin Magazine

The Austin Magazine is an annual magazine that rounds up some of the highlights of the previous academic year at School. There has been a Magazine produced every year since the School opened in 1951. The 2019/20 Magazine's production has been delayed due to the impact of COVID-19 and so please do browse through our most recent magazine for the academic year 2018/19 in the meantime for a flavour of a 'normal' year in School.

Current School Activities

Recent school events, celebrations and achievements can be viewed on the School's Facebook page.
