About our school experience


Each school experience day runs from 8:50am to 3.15pm. Approximately two weeks prior to your day, you will receive an email with joining detail, a request for electronic copies of your ID and final confirmation of your attendance.
On arrival, please report to the main school reception, where a check will take place against the ID you have sent over electronically (part of our safeguarding procedure). Lunch can be ordered on arrival (for a small charge) or you are welcome to bring your own. You will be escorted to the class/classes you are visiting for the day. The rest of the day will be spent observing lessons either within the class or across the school. An optional proforma will be provided to record observations, thoughts and reflections. During morning and lunch break you are welcome in the staffroom. Mobile phones are not permitted in the classrooms and confidentiality and discretion with any information shared regarding pupils and staff, is of high importance to ensure the safeguarding of the school community.
At the end of the day staff members may be available if you have any further questions/reflections on the day. We hope you will have an enjoyable and beneficial experience.
