Open Mornings for Schools

School Open Days

These schools often prove the most popular and are eminently reachable when living in Northamptonshire /Buckinghamshire.

Rachel often accompanies her clients to School Open Days, or can arrange private visits to explore schooling options to coincide with when you will be visiting the area.

‘ ***’ = none scheduled at the moment – contact the school to arrange a visit
