Open Evening

Woldgate School Open Evening: Thursday 14th October

It is with great pleasure that I invite you and your child to attend our Open Evening on Thursday 14th October.  Choosing your child’s secondary school is an exciting time for both parent and pupils and as a school we want to fully support you as you begin this process. During the Open Evening you will have the chance to learn about our school community and ethos, explore our site and find out about the wide range of enrichment opportunities we offer our pupils.

To begin the evening, there will be a live, online welcome from Mr Britton, Mr Sloman and myself at 5pm, hosted on our Open Evening website.  You and your child will then be able to visit our school to take a guided tour between 6.00pm and 9.00pm.  During the tour you will have the opportunity to meet our pupils and subject teachers, ask questions and receive a goody bag of Woldgate School resources. 

We recognise what a significant decision you are making when choosing your child’s school.  With this in mind, following the evening, there is also a chance to book a virtual meeting with a member of our Senior Leadership Team. This will be an opportunity to get a personal welcome, as well ask any additional questions you may have.

On the evening itself we will need you and your child to wear a face covering for the duration of the visit and to use hand sanitizer upon arrival. Please can we ask that you do not attend if you have Covid/cold symptoms. It is also essential please, that you arrive on time for your specific time slot. Limiting the number within your party would also be appreciated. Colleagues and children will throughout the visit remain in classroom and activities will need to be viewed from the corridor. We would ask that you refrain from entering classrooms during your visit. We are conscious these arrangements differ from previous years and will not be as immersive as normal, but parents will hopefully find the opportunity valuable and helpful in gaining a sense of what makes our community so special.

We very much hope you will be able to attend and, if you would like to be entered for a prize-draw to win an Amazon Fire HD 8 tablet, receive our weekly newsletter and an electronic copy of our prospectus in advance of the Open Evening, please follow the steps below:
