  • We went on a pre booked private tour but you can go online to their website or walk past & see if there's a board outside with info. Outside photos only none allowed inside because it's still a school. Lots of history going back centuries & a lot to do with the wars as this school lost a lot of old pupils.
  • Interesting though I wish I had asked more questions.
