Overview of our Open Evenings
We welcome prospective parents and students from both local villages and further afield. The evening provides an opportunity for families to see The Weald at work, hear about exciting developments, particularly our new buildings/facilities and talk to some of our staff and students.
On arrival, families are greeted in reception by our friendly Sixth Form prefects and senior staff, who will provide suggested routes around the school and attractions. Lower school students are also on hand to act as tour guides and answer any questions our future year 7s may have.
The Head, Peter Woodman, gives a brief overview of work at The Weald, particularly focusing on the welcome new students can expect in September 2020. Current Sixth Formers and year 7s give speeches explaining how rewarding life is as a student at The Weald.
Refreshments and taster menus are showcased in our new cafeteria to provide an understanding of the variety of healthy meals available daily to students and staff.
Each subject area displays examples of work and learning activities, ranging from exciting scientific explosions and experiments to printing with inks in art. This is available to enable families to gain a clear insight into the wide range of facilities on offer at The Weald.
There are also several different music performances from our talented students dotted around the subject areas for visitors to enjoy.
Families always leave our Open Evenings feeling elated after an exciting, fun-packed evening. Prospective students receive prizes including bouncy balls and Weald pencils for visiting all subject areas.
