We will be holding Year 6 Open Evening for students and parents/carers on Thursday 1st October at 6.30pm. Unfortunately, we are unable to hold this event in school, so it will be held online via Zoom.
Mr Matthews will be delivering a live message to introduce himself and the school. Following this, there will be a Q&A session hosted by our students and staff. There will be a link on the school website to a virtual tour where you can meet Heads of Department and see lessons in progress to get an understanding of life at Edgbarrow School.

Whilst we would love you to join us for the live message, we know it is not always convenient. Don’t worry if you miss it or experience technical issues, all videos will be available online after the event on this page.
