Information about Secondary Schools Opening Evenings

As a result of Covid-19 social distancing requirements, secondary schools have reviewed their normal open evening arrangements and change how they are delivered.  We have worked with our secondary schools to finalise details of their open evening arrangements.  Many schools have taken the decision to arrange virtual open evenings and online presentations.  The current arrangements can be found in the Downloads and Resources area and on each individual website.  This will be updated as new information is received.  School web links are given below:-
