Hertfordshire School Admissions

"New to Reception" tours

We warmly invite you to come and see what a normal day is like at MPL by booking on to one of our "New to Reception" tours.


The Head Teacher, Mrs Williams, or Deputy Head Teacher, Mrs Bradshaw, will take you on a tour of our Early Years provision followed by a look around the rest of the school so you can get a good feel for our happy, hard-working school.

Tours take approximately one hour. A reduced tour of just the Early Years setting can be offered if needed.


We encourage you to bring your child/children with you because it is so important that you can see your child in our environment and it makes the tours more fun for us!

We politely ask that you carry very young children, as pushchairs, prams and buggies can be hard to manoeuvre around the classrooms.  


Places on each tour are limited to 10 adults. 


Please call the office to book your place on 01923 672729 or email them at 


Dates of tours for this term are:

Tour 1:  17/10/23 at 11am

Tour 2:  19/10/23 at 2pm

Tour 3:  02/11/23 at 11am
