Prospective Parents

At Our Lady’s RC High School, we are aware that the transition from primary to secondary school can be challenging for both parents and students. Through close liaison with students, parents and our partner schools, we ensure the transition is as straightforward and smooth as possible. We organise a variety of events and visits which are outlined below.

Our annual 2020 Open Evening is on Thursday 24 September 2020 and we offer Open Mornings for students (hoping to join us in September 2021) and their families during the following week.
