Bellan House Virtual Taster Sessions

For Years 3, 4 and 5

If you would like your child to experience what makes Oswestry School different from other schools, we invite you to book a virtual taster session with either Year 3, 4, or 5.

These sessions will include live lessons with our teachers and will enable your child to get to know the children in the class (via remote social contact); a great way to get a feel for the values and ethos of Bellan House.
