Ounsdale has a thriving and well established Sixth Form which we are very proud of and we would like to invite you to our Open Evening taking place on Thursday 24th October from 6 – 9pm. This is an excellent opportunity to meet our friendly and highly skilled staff and take a look at the wide range of courses we have to offer.
We were delighted with the success of this year’s Open Evening for prospective parents and their children. The buzz around school was great and the feedback from those attending about what the school offers, the staff and the students was excellent. We are extremely grateful to all of our students who gave up their time to help on this evening and were extremely pleased to hear so many positive comments about how confident, helpful and happy they were. Well Done to all involved!
Year 6 Parents who were unable to attend the Open evening or who wish to visit the school during a normal working day are welcome to contact school to make an appointment.
Here is our 4th e-newsletter, which we hope you will enjoy. It includes information about exam results, Autumn term dates, uniform updates, new staff and much more.[button url=”http://www.ounsdale.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/September-13.pdf” target=”_self” size=”small” style=”skyblue” ]Newsletter September 2013[/button]
