Open Evenings and mornings


Open Evenings

Our Open Evening events are hugely popular and are designed to provide prospective students and their parents a flavour of who we are and what we believe.  Events are often fully booked well in advance so we recommend booking early to avoid disappointment. 

The first of our two Open Evenings for children transferring to secondary school in 2025 and their parents / carers is on Thursday 20 June 2024.  This event is now fully booked.

The second open evening will be on Thursday 12 September 2024 and bookings for this will open closer to the time.  After this, there are no further open evenings before the deadline for applications. 




Open Mornings

If you are unable to attend an open evening, there is an opportunity for Year 6 children and their parent/carer to visit the college during school-day mornings, by appointment only. 

Each session starts at 9 am and ends at 10.30 am.  The Open Mornings are for Year 6 children and their parents/carers, who have yet to choose their preferred secondary school.  Places are limited and, so that as many Year 6 children as possible have the opportunity to visit the college, each booking is restricted to the Year 6 child and up to two parents/carers each, who were not able to attend an open evening. 

Attendance to the Open Mornings is by appointment.  Dates and details of how to book your place will be published in the autumn term.





If you are unable to attend one of our open events, to get a taste of what is on offer, we have a series of short films telling you about the different departments and the facilities on offer at the college.  It's not as exciting as being able to walk around and soak up the atmosphere of the college but we hope it gives you an initial introduction to our community.  Leaving primary school, where children probably know every pupil and every teacher, can feel a bit scary for some, so watching some of the films with parents and carers is a great way of starting to feel excited about moving on to secondary school.

Unfortunately, we are unable to offer bespoke tours for individual families who have children transferring from local primary schools.  We simply do not have the capacity to offer this service.  Families who are relocating to the area who are not able to attend the open evenings can email for more information about visiting the college. 


Parents and carers of children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities may contact our SENDCo, Katherine Hurst, for more information about our SEND provisions.  Unfortunately, as above, we do not have the capacity to offer bespoke tours:
