School Open Days & Nights 14th – 19th January

School Open Days / Nights are a great way for your child to experience their potential, future ‘big school’ and get a feel for its culture, ethos, subjects and activities, in order to decide if it really is the school for them. 

But it’s not just for the P7s, as all schools openly invite P6s to get their first peek as to where they may go to in a couple of years and it’s important to  start this research early as it will give them something to aspire towards and if needed work hard to obtain the scores to gain a place. So if you had any concerns about turning up and your child is only P6, don’t worry and be assured that these days are very much for you too.
