Admissions and transition

We believe that a successful transition from primary to secondary school is of upmost importance

Informal Open Evening Wednesday 16th October 4-5pm

Feedback from Year 5 Taster Days:

 Good afternoon, 

 I would just like to thank-you on behalf of year five for a fantastic, engaging taster day at Prestwich Arts today. 

 The children have had a fantastic experience once again. Last year, we were impressed with the maths and the science lessons but today we were blown away! 

 From the moment the children walked in they were entertained and engaged. The opening show was a brilliant way to immerse the children into the day and it was a brilliant opportunity for them to witness older boys and girls participating in singing and dancing - this definitely had an impact on those children who are often reluctant to join in. In each session, all of the children were fully engaged and enjoyed participating in the variety of tasks. Since leaving Prestwich Arts, the children have not stopped talking about the fun activities that they were part of. 

 Once again thank-you for all of the hard work that the staff and pupils put into the day! It is fair to say that the children have had a memorable day that will stick with them. 

 Many thanks 

 Year 5 Teacher
