Open Evenings and mornings

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. 

Our Open Evenings for current Year 6 children and their parents/carers took place on Thursday 16 June 2022 and Wednesday 14 September 2022. 

Open events for current Year 5 children will take place in June, September and October 2023.

Open Mornings

If you were unable to attend our Open Evenings, there is an opportunity for Year 6 children and their parent/carer to visit the college on the following mornings, by appointment only:

  • Tuesday 27 September
  • Wednesday 28 September
  • Thursday 6 October

Each session starts at 9 am and ends at 10.30 am.  The Open Mornings are for current 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 have not attended an open evening. 

To book a place at one of our Open Morning sessions, please telephone the main school number: 01803 400660.

Please note that current Year 5 children will have the opportunity to visit the college at our open events in June, September and October 2023.

 

If you were/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.

BESPOKE TOURS

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 admissions@thespirescollege.com 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: send@thespirescollege.com.

 

If you have any questions about admission to the college, please email: admissions@thespirescollege.com
