Virtual School Open Nights & Tours 2021

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. However, it’s no surprise that this year, things have to be done a little differently and many schools have responded brilliantly with online tours and pre-recorded information to allow parents to get a really good feel for their school.

If You Want Me To Add /Change Something

If you have further information you would like to be included in this blog, or you’ve spotted an error (no matter how small), please click here for the online form so I can capture the information methodically and update accordingly.

Advantages Of Online

Initially, when it was realised that open nights would not be taking place in 2021, there was a tangible, group sigh with the realisation that Covid had taken away another traditional diary date, but it’s not all bad. During this research I’ve been really impressed with a lot of schools that I probably wouldn’t have had the chance to visit, plus the whole family can have a good look at their leisure whereas normally one has to stay behind to mind the other siblings and also there’s no chance of diary clashes (this often happens and you can’t be in two places at once).

So let’s try and see the positives and embrace this new way and appreciate we have this technology to give us the view.

This guide will be updated as new information becomes available.

More about The Transfer Tutor App

The Transfer Tutor App is an online site dedicated to providing fun and interactive quizzes aligned directly to the AQE / GL specifications.  All quizzes are broken down into manageable topics and can be done on any mobile or tablet device, so it’s an great way for kids to learn and prepare for the test.

There are many, great features including (but not limited to):

  • Quizzes broken down into specific English and Maths topics, to allow for focused learning and the ability to hone in on areas of weakness.
  • Mobile friendly and works on any internet device.
  • Hint’ option supports the child’s learning. For example, in question about calculating area of an irregular shape, the hint will say, “Break it into two” – enough to keep the child going but teaching them for future, similar questions.
  • The Leaderboard at the end makes the child feel like they’re playing a game and having friendly competition.
  • Good use of colour and graphics which makes it exciting.
  • Parents receives a progress email at the end to let them know how their child did.

How To Buy

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is Works-On-ALL-Devices-1-1024x1024.png

All normal licences are a simple, one-off payment (except the monthly subscription of course) and they can be purchased in confidence through a normal PayPal account or using a normal bank card and the Guest option.

Licences are purchased depending on the length of time required and as additional years are only charged at £15 per year, it’s worth considering a longer licence if you have a younger sibling.

To help you choose the perfect licence for you, here’s a quick reference guide:

  • Youngest in P6 – Elephant Licence
  • Youngest in P5 – Tiger Licence

Simply choose the licence you need depending on the length of time you need access, click on the blue box, pay and then you’ll be off within minutes.

For any further questions, please contact me or check out the Frequently Asked Questions page.

If you need a licence that is not detailed below, just let me know and I can arrange something specific for you.
