Open Events 2023-24
Throughout the year, St Andrew's hosts a range of events that open the school to our community. We welcome visitors and feedback, and therefore continue to open our doors throughout the academic year. The events will be bookable using links that will appear below once available.
Should you have any questions about the open events, please contact us via email@example.com
Summer Morning and Tours - July 11th, 12th and 13th 2023
We understand that choosing a secondary school can be daunting. To help you in making informed decisions, we are opening the school for 3 Open Mornings before the summer holidays to prospective students and families. We would love to welcome you on a tour with a member of the Senior Leadership team to see the school in action, help you trial some subjects and hear from the Head about the school's future focused vision.
These Open Mornings will be running on July 11th, 12th and 13th from 9am to 11am. The whole family is welcome, and actually encouraged, to join! One 'ticket' includes the whole family.
For information about how we undertake transition, which we know is a challenging time for many, you can see the full details about our transition programme on our dedicated page by clicking here.
