Our doors are open for socially distanced parent tours
We're opening our doors for parents of Years 5 and 6 pupils to book a socially distanced tour where they will be able to get a feel for the school, learn more about facilities and meet our new Headteacher Jane Price.
For parents whose children are approaching secondary school age, the COVID-19 pandemic has meant they have not been able to attend the usual open days and their son or daughter has not had the opportunity to spend a day experiencing life at a secondary school.
Jane Price has been at Bishop Perowne for several years as the former Deputy Headteacher and became Headteacher at the beginning of the year. Jane commented:
"We all understand how daunting choosing a secondary school can be, but it has been made more challenging due to the restrictions that came with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.
"To us education is more than just exam results, but without being able to attend open days, it is difficult for parents to get a feel for how we balance our rich curriculum with extra-curricular activities to allow students to achieve the best possible outcomes in all areas of school life.
"With so many aspects to consider when choosing the right school, we wanted to find a solution so parents could still visit and learn more about the high expectations and standards we set, and how their child could thrive at Bishop Perowne. We look forward to welcoming parents for a tour."
To ensure social distancing rules are adhered to, only one family will be permitted for each tour and it will take place outside. Parents can arrange a visit by contacting us on 01905 746804.
