iPad Open Morning – sadly, we are unable to invite you to tour Papplewick in person at the moment, but we hope that we can provide the ‘next best thing’ through a tour of the school with two of our boys using an Ipad. In this way, you will be able to meet many of the staff and boys, while also having the opportunity to quiz your tour guides about all aspects of their lives with us. Each tour will start with a ten minute meeting with the Headmaster via Skype, and finish with a short discussion with our Registrar.

For further information, and to register attendance, please contact the Registrar, Rebecca Lindley, at [email protected] or on 01344 621488.
