Secondary school open evenings

Can I visit schools?

Traditionally when your child is transfers to secondary school, prior to making an application to school you and your child would have had an opportunity to attend open days and evenings to see the wonderful work that takes place within each school.

The Coronavirus pandemic has made schools consider whether this is the right thing to do in the current circumstances.

All Shropshire mainstream secondary schools have decided that they will not hold any open evenings or open week tours at their schools this year.

The safety of our young people is paramount and having large groups of pupils and parents attending open evenings increases the risk of transmitting the virus.

The schools will still be putting on events and will be using their websites to showcase their schools and adding resources to help Year 6 pupils and their parents to get an insight into each school.

These resources could take a variety of formats; virtual tours, headteacher speeches, videos of the school in action and perhaps even drone videos.

Please visit each school’s website (details below) to find out what each school is offering.
