Year 8 - 9 Open Evening

We are looking forward to welcoming students and parents to our Open Evening on Thursday 7th October 2021.  The evening will run from 5.30pm until 7.30pm.  There will be lots of staff (and students!) on hand to show you around the school, answer any questions and provide any all necessary information.  

There will be a presentation that will be shown three times throughout the evening - at 5.30pm, 6.15pm and again at 6.45pm.
