Main School Virtual Open Evening 2020

Welcome to the CNS Virtual Open Evening. Our open events are always a huge success and this year won’t be any different. Of course, we are disappointed that we can't invite families in through the door, but the safety of our students and staff is our top priority.  We’ve worked hard in our planning and communications throughout the pandemic and this event will be no different.  Our school motto of 'Excellence in all' reflects our vision of achieving the very highest standards in everything we do, alongside a strong ethos of community and care.  Our aim is to provide a safe and enjoyable experience for our prospective parents and carers and provide them with all the information they need for one of the biggest decisions that a family will make together".
