Open Days/Visit Us
We are hugely proud of our school and are always happy to welcome visitors. The earliest formal opportunity is our Open Week from Monday 25th – Friday 29th June 2018. This will see our prospective 2018 Year 7 intake attend a day at school on Monday 25th, following which parents and carers are invited to an information evening on Thursday 28th in Aquinas Hall.
Complementing this opportunity, we are hosting a taster day for Year 5 students from our Catholic feeder schools on Wednesday 27th June, with parents and carers invited to a presentation that evening in Aquinas Hall. This offers an early opportunity to forge links prior to our Open Evening in the autumn term. Parents and carers of students not from our Catholic feeder schools who are interested in attending are encouraged to contact the school.
Our annual Open Evening for prospective students and their parents is an opportunity to become familiar with all that students can expect to enjoy at St John Payne Catholic School. This year it will be held on Thursday 4th October 2018 from 5.30-7.30 p.m. There will be opportunities to hear from the Headteacher, with tours available under the guidance of students, who along with staff will be happy to respond to any request or query you may have. The evening always provides a wonderful showcase of the fantastic provision students enjoy.
Whilst the above occasions offer a wealth of insight and information, there is no better means of gaining insight into life at St John Payne than to visit during the working day to experience the school in all its vibrancy and colour. The weeks following our summer open week and autumn term open evening naturally lend themselves to a visit. However, we encourage visits year round whenever is convenient for you, and can assure you there are always willing students eager to showcase their school. They serve as wonderful ambassadors, and truly are the school’s greatest advocates.
We look forward to welcoming you.
