Over these two days more than 340 Year 6 pupils and their staff from across nine local Primary Schools enjoyed a day with us to experience High School life. Pupils followed a timetable of exciting and interactive activities covering Science, PE, History, Geography, ICT and Modern Foreign Languages, learning a variety of new skills and gaining confidence mixing with other pupils and new teachers. Our Year 11 Prefect ambassadors acted as excellent guides and helpers throughout the day, along with other skilled pupil helpers.

Year 6 Primary pupils enjoyed a choice of hot cooked meals at lunchtime in the school canteen, which along with moving between rooms for their different lessons and trying out new activities, gave them a valuable taste of how a Secondary School operates. Pupils had both an enjoyable and educational time at Chesterton Community Sports College and on the Thursday returned later that night with their parents for our very busy Open Evening, where the whole school site was open for prospective parents and their children to freely tour our facilities, meet and chat with both staff and both current and past pupils. A huge variety of interactive activities, plays and staff demonstrations where on show, plus world foods and buffet was available! Parents were greatly impressed with the School, it’s pupils and staff, and completed evaluation forms, and requesting tours.

Parents wishing to tour the School during a working day are welcome to contact the Mrs Stokes the Headteacher’s PA to arrange a suitable time and date – telephone our School Office on 01782 568350.
