Open Events – Information & Update
21st June 2021
As Year 5 parents and students start to think about the application process for secondary schools, we are receiving a number of enquiries regarding opportunities to visit. The current guidelines from the Department for Education and Public Health England ask schools to follow the secondary schools ‘Covid-19’ systems in schools, as well as the current national roadmap in relation to visitors attending school sites and open events.
We would like to reassure you, that our utmost priority is that we are able to offer visit opportunities that are valuable and enjoyable but also, and, most importantly, safe for all.
What are we offering currently?
Small Group Tours
We are currently able to run small group tours around the outside of the school site. We are able to take up to two households/families on a small group tour around the school with a member of staff. We are able to show you key areas of the school, particularly in relation to Year 7, and also provide the opportunity to ask questions about the school and transition. Your child is very welcome to join the tour with you.
If you would like to book a small group tour, please contact Sue Geoghegan, Transition Co-ordinator SGeoghegan@corsham.wilts.sc.uk
We would also like to let you know that….
Mr Bell is visiting Year 5 Classes in Term 6
Mr Bell, Headteacher, is currently visiting Year 5 classes this term in our local Primary Schools enabling students to find out more about The Corsham School and ask him questions.
Year 5 Class Visits in Term 6
We are in discussion with our local Primary Schools to offer Year 5 students a class visit. This visit allows students the opportunity to experience a lesson at Corsham School and to have a tour of the school along with an opportunity to meet Ms Fairbairn, Head of Year 7, and Mrs Geoghegan, Transition Co-ordinator, and ask any questions they may have regarding life at Corsham School. You will receive communication about this visit via your child’s Primary School.
If your child lives outside our catchment area but would like to access a short, small group visit, please complete the form here to register your interest, and we will be in touch to book your child onto a visit for either this term or Term 1 of 2021/22.
Annual Open Evening
Following recent government announcement regarding the delay to easing of restrictions we are postponing our Annual Open Evening to Wednesday 22nd September 2021. The event will run from 6pm-8.30pm allowing families to visit the school, look around, meet staff and ask questions about all aspects of the school. Please keep an eye on our website where we will give an update regarding this proposed event.
If you would like to register interest in attending our Open Evening in September, please complete the form here.
We also hope to offer two Open Working Mornings (9am-11am) in September/October 2021 which will allow families to visit during the school during a normal, working school day. Open Working Mornings include a talk from Mr Bell, Headteacher, at 9am followed by a tour of the school by Corsham School students. These dates will be advertised on this webpage.
