At Crookhorn College we understand that the decision about which school your child chooses to attend in September is one of the biggest decisions you will make as a family. Therefore, we want to provide you with as much useful information as we can, to ensure you are able to make an informed decision.

Thursday 16th September 2021

Free Ticketed event - Booking Sold Out

First Session: 5.45pm - 7pm

Second Session: 7.15pm - 8.30pm

Tickets for the event are FREE and can be booked through Eventbrite.
This event is now FULLY BOOKED.

We are delighted to welcome Year 6 parents and pupils to Crookhorn College this year on the 16th of September for our Open Evening. This is a great chance for you and your child to visit the College site and experience the true Crookhorn ethos.

We have had to make the difficult decision this year, as the pandemic continues to affect our community, to limit the numbers of people visiting the site, to allow enough space for visitors to feel comfortable. However, it is imperative for us to make sure that as many parents and children who want to visit the College have a chance to do so.

As a result, we are going to split our open evening into two sessions. The first session will run from 17:45 to 19.00 and the second session will run from 19:15 to 20:30. We have allocated 150 tickets for each session. We ask this year that only one parent accompanies their child which means that numbers on-site during each session are limited to 300. To be able to attend one of these sessions, you will need to book a space through Eventbrite using the link below. Each ticket is for one child and one parent. The sessions are available to book from Wednesday 8th of September at 6am.

This year the Headteachers speech will be published virtually and will be available on the website (please see below). Please do watch this before you come on your tour.

For any parents and pupils who miss being able to book a ticket for the 16th, we are delighted to be able to welcome families and pupils to come for a tour of the College from September 20th 2021 until 20th of October 2021. You will be able to book a tour on a Monday, Wednesday, Thursday or Friday at either 9:10am, 11:15am or 13:30pm. You will find a link to the booking system below. These tours can be booked by Year 6 families and one ticket will cover two parents and one child. If you did not manage to secure a ticket to Open Evening, this is a great chance for you to visit our College during the school day. 

Although we are having to do things slightly differently from how they have run historically I am sure you will appreciate that we want to give as many parents and children as possible the chance to visit the College and see it in full operation, whilst feeling safe and comfortable at the same time. I hope that you understand therefore the measures that we have put in place for this year.
