On behalf all our staff and students, we would like to say a very big thank you to everyone who attended our Open Evening at the end of September. It is only when we are unable to do something that we really appreciate its value, and the opportunity to show off our outstanding school to prospective students and parents is hugely important.
Opening our doors again allowed visitors to look around the school, speak to teachers and students and get an idea of all that we do. There was activity from every faculty, from science experiments to playing a musical instrument, to enjoying a quick game of badminton.
The evening was ably supported by student volunteers who provided valuable assistance to visitors, spoke about their own experiences of the school and helped with the activities and demonstrations that filled the evening.
After needing to have a fully virtual event last year, we appreciated that not everyone would be comfortable attending a busy public event, or may even have had to isolate themselves. Our online offering was up and running ahead of the event, with virtual tours and recorded messages from senior members of staff.
Headteacher Mr Cregg said, “We are delighted to show off our achievements, our values and ambition for every student. The Open Evening is always a special event, offering a flavour of what young people can expect if they join our school.”
Thank you too if you have submitted your application for next September – we wish you every success.
