Open Working Mornings
We hold Open Working Mornings in March, July and September (dates are announced on this webpage). These offer the opportunity to visit the school on a normal working day.
Open Working Mornings start with an introduction by Rod Bell, Headteacher at 9am. Student guides then offer a tour of the school and the opportunity to ask them questions about school life. The tour ends at Springfield Community Campus where you can speak further to key staff including Mr Bell, Headteacher, and Sue Geoghegan, Transition Co-ordinator.
Annual Open Evening
Our Annual Open Evening takes place on Thursday 18th June 2020. This is an opportunity to hear a talk by Mr Bell, Headteacher, see all curriculum areas and meet subject and pastoral staff. We welcome parents and students to this event to see all opportunities on offer and ask questions to enhance your understanding of teaching and Learning and pastoral support at The Corsham School.
If you are unable to attend the Open Working Mornings or the Open Evening, we are able to organise an individual tour of the school along with the opportunity to ask any questions.
Please contact Sue Geoghegan, Transition Co-ordinator, who will be happy to arrange this for you.

Taster Days 2020
We work closely with our primary feeder schools and we offer an opportunity for Year 5 students at these schools to come and enjoy a taster day with us.
Students in Year 6 are then invited to spend a further day at their new school - this is usually in January of Year 6. On these days, further activities are undertaken to give students a real sense of secondary school life. 6th Form leaders and guides from Year 8 spend time with them to answer any questions and reassure them about the challenges to come!
A ‘Taster Day’ is the opportunity for Year 5 and Year 6 students to spend a day with us experiencing all the opportunities available at The Corsham School. We liaise closely with our feeder Primary Schools to organise a Taster Day for each Year 5 and Year 6 class. Year 5 Taster Days take place in July of each year and Year 6 Taster Days in January.
Taster Day visits allow the students to experience a ‘Day in the Life’ of The Corsham School. Students follow a timetable and experience a variety of lessons including Film Studies, Philosophy and Media Studies as well as more familiar subjects such as English, Maths and Science.
Students also have the opportunity to ask questions of older students and hear about transition to secondary school from those who have recently experienced it.
If you would like your child to attend a Taster Day, please contact Sue Geoghegan, Transition Co-ordinator, who will book your child’s place.
