Many York primary schools are opening their doors for open days or evening visits for nursery and reception starters in September 2022. If you’ve missed your school of choice many are also offering individual visits.
Here are some of the schools welcoming prospective families in the next few weeks.
Join us on Saturday 27 November 2021 for our Whole School Open Morning 9.30 am – 2 pm
We warmly invite you to our Whole School Open Morning, for children from 3 months old to Year 13. We’re delighted this will be taking place on site and look forward to welcoming you back to our beautiful campus on the Thorpe Underwood Estate.
Our Open Day will include tours of our campus and the chance to speak with our Acting Principal, Mr Dan Machin, and our Heads of School, key subject and support staff. You will then have the opportunity to meet directly with staff and prefects from the relevant school for your child.
