Saint Paul’s Catholic High School in Wythenshawe, Greater Manchester, opened its doors to parents and the community, when it held an Open Evening where parents, carers and primary school pupils were invited to see the school at work. There was a special focus on those parents who are now looking for a school for their son or daughter who will be starting school in September 2022.
Saint Paul’s is keen to encourage all those in the local community to come to visit its premises and learn about how the school is developing both academically and in its extra-curricular activities such as sport, music and drama.
The Open Evening provided a window into the school allowing parents to make an informed choice about their child’s future school.
Whilst the Open Evening has now been and gone, parents are invited to bring their families to look round the school and speak to current students and staff so that they can get a real feel for how life is at Saint Paul’s.
Mr Mike Whiteside, Deputy Headteacher, said: “Thank you to all those who attended our Open Evening. The atmosphere was excellent and there was certainly a ‘buzz’ around school with all visitors giving really positive feedback.”
Mr Alex Hren, Head Teacher, said: “Our Open Evening allowed prospective parents and pupils the opportunity to meet with staff and students as well as viewing our facilities and participating in experiments and workshops. They were able to look at examples of students’ work and see how the curriculum is delivered. Staff from all areas of the school, Teaching, Pastoral, SEND and Support were available to answer a variety of queries.” “I was delighted to welcome prospective pupils and their families to the school. I am very proud of the school, its staff, its students and their achievements.”
