Open Evening and Open Day

St Michael’s Church of England High School would like to invite you and your child to attend the school’s Open Evening on Wednesday 15th September or our Open Day on Thursday 16th September, where students and departments will be showcasing all that St Michael’s Church of England High School has to offer.

To ensure we can keep both yourselves, our staff and students safe, we will be operating a booking system this year. This will ensure that we are able to control the number of families on the site at one time. We are an oversubscribed school and, in previous years, we have had over 400 families turn up on an evening to visit us. We simply cannot allow this to happen in the current climate.

Both the Open Evening and Open Day will be split into a limited number of timeslots. Only three groups of a maximum of four family members will be allocated to one of our 15 guides per time slot. There will be four starting points on the tour this year and they will operate in a one-way system. Each group will visit each point on the tour in a specific order, enabling us to facilitate social distancing measures as much as possible.

During the events, we will have cleaning staff wiping surfaces and ensure the routes remain clean and tidy. Throughout the COVID situation, we have followed Government guidance very closely and will continue to do so, to ensure the safety of visitors to our site.

Also, due to the rise in new cases locally and nationally, to keep our staff and visitors safe, all participants will be asked to wear a face-covering whilst inside the building, unless exempt.

If you cannot attend the Open Evening or Open Day, do not worry. Get in touch and let us know when is convenient for a visit and we’ll try our very best to accommodate you.

The Open Evening starts at 5:30 pm and finishes at 8:30 pm. The Open Day starts at 9:30 am and finishes at 2:30 pm. At both events, you will be offered a guided tour of the school by our students and meet members of St Michael’s senior leadership team, pastoral staff and teaching staff and see the amazing facilities that St Michael’s has to offer.

If you would like to attend either event, you can do so by booking via the link below:
