The first of four Acorns and Prep School Open Doors mornings at Ashville College is taking place today, Wednesday, October 25.
Families of children aged two to 11 will be able to see current pupils and teachers ‘in action’ and take a tour of the classrooms and outdoor learning and play spaces.
The school's head Rhiannon Wilkinson said: Mrs Wilkinson added: “We recognise visits to our school are as much for prospective pupils as their parents, enabling them to get a feel for Ashville and our unique community.
“At each stage, we hope families enjoy their visit, gain the answers to the questions they arrive with, and walk away a step closer to that all-important decision about the right school for their child.”
The new series of open events at Ashville College is aimed at pupils joining the school for the next academic year in Acorns for two to four-year-olds, Reception class, Year 7, and Sixth Form.
A Sixth Form Options Fair on Thursday, November 16 will introduce Year 11s to the Sixth Form at Ashville.
The event will cover the Sixth Form curriculum, including A Level and BTEC courses, the Future Ready programme, external trips, and co-curricular offer, and enable visitors to look around the Sixth Form facilities.
This will be followed on Saturday, November 18 by a Year 7 Taster Day, which aims to help Year 6 pupils preparing for the leap to secondary education.
Children will be able to take part in short taster lessons, including Cooking and Creative Writing to Latin and Maths, sports and more, followed by lunch in the Dining Hall.
Meanwhile, a Reception Open Morning will take place on Saturday, November 25 with the theme ‘Enchanted Forest’.
Parents can meet with Reception Class Teachers while children take part in fun classroom-based activities, before sitting around a fire and having a warm drink.
A guaranteed spot will be given to the first 15 families to register.
