High schools across the borough are holding open events throughout September and October, inviting prospective pupils and their parents or carers to come and see what the schools have to offer.
So if your child is moving up to secondary school next September, it’s your chance to go along and see your local schools for yourself. And with applications needing to be in by 31 October, it’s a great way for you to make your mind up about which school will be best for your child.
