Information Booklet for Prospective Parents

This document is designed to provide general information about school and school routines, and to answer some of the questions you may have.

Prospective Parents for September 2021

LDSM usually holds two Open Mornings in early November. Whilst these cannot take place this year due to the current restrictions, our pupils are busy making a 'virtual tour' for you to enjoy. This will be available on our website soon.

In the meantime, our 'Prospective Parents' booklet can be downloaded (above) which may answer some of the questions that Mrs Martin would usually talk about in her presentation to parents on Open Day. Please call the office on 020 8398 1070 if you have a query that cannot be answered by the information on the website and we will do our best to assist you.

If you have any further enquiries please contact the School by telephone on 0208 398 1070 or via the School email address 


Alternatively please contact Surrey County Council on 0300 200 1004 (8.00am – 6.00pm, weekdays) or use their website
