In Preparation Days 2019 

We welcomed over 400 students to our two In Preparation Days this year from our local primary schools. It was fantastic to see them engaging and enjoying their experience of life at secondary school. They experienced various lessons   and learning approaches and were accompanied by our wonderful student leaders from years 7-10.

Thank you to all the students, parents, and carers who came to our Open Evening this year. Thank you for your overwhelmingly positive comments and feedback and for the focused, engaging conversations we had about your child's learning.   We look forward to your applications - remember that the deadline is 31st October 2019 for Secondary Admissions to Peterborough County Council.
