If you are considering Blackfriars for your son’s education, or our Early Learning Centre for your son or daughter, we recommend planning a visit to help you decide if our school community is the right choice for your family.

Principal’s Tours

Discover the unique approach to Dominican education on a tour of Blackfriars with Principal, David Ruggiero, Head of Primary, Emma Begg, and Deputy Principal, Brett Knowles.

Our popular monthly Principal’s Tours are a great way to experience Blackfriars on a normal school day. In the summer terms, we offer the convenience of evening Principal’s Tours, as well as morning tours. As part of Catholic Education Week (May) and Catholic Schools Open Week (August), we also offer Saturday morning Principal’s Tours.

On your tour you will visit a number of classrooms and specialist facilities, meet our teachers and students, and be introduced to our holistic approach to teaching and learning.

Please note that the focus of the Principal’s Tours is the Blackfriars Primary and Secondary School. For ELC Tours, please see below.
