October 2018 – Date TBC
Attending one of our Open Mornings is an excellent way to find out more about Oaklands School. An Oaklands Open Morning takes place on a normal school day providing an opportunity for prospective parents to gain a real sense of what Oaklands has to offer their children.
Tours of the school are guided by our Year 6 children who will tell you what life at Oaklands is like from a pupil’s point of view. It is also an opportunity to meet the Headmistress, members of staff and current parents informally over refreshments.
Parents of current pupils are also welcome to re-acquaint themselves with our new facilities and to see what we offer the older children.
Parking is available in the surrounding roads and access to the site is gained via two entrances; Lower Gate on the High Road and Upper Gate on Albion Hill. Please allow extra time to find a good parking space. We recommend parking on Nursery Road, Warren Hill, or Spring Grove. Although the school is on a hill with some steps, there is a ramp for buggies that can also be left outside the main hall. Our guides will help you.
While official Open Mornings are held in October and March each year, we recognise that it isn’t always possible to attend and many parents prefer a more detailed individual discussion with Mrs Belej and a full guided tour before registering.
We recommend that children are registered on our waiting lists at birth or soon after as there is considerable pressure for places. Places do occasionally become available during the year so it’s worth coming along to see us and registering after. Our most recent Open Morning was very busy with parents registering their children for entry up to 2020.
Oaklands welcomes personal visits throughout the academic year. Please contact the Miss M Hopwood, the Admissions Registrar, if you would like to arrange a personal visit.
