What the school says...

Parmiter's School is partially selective. A copy of our admissions criteria can be found on our school website. We welcome visitors to the school; please get in touch with our admissions secretary if you would like to visit.

Thank the school

Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.
