Open Events

We are looking forward to welcoming year 6 pupils and their parents to our open events being held in September and October 2021. These events will showcase the quality of education and learning provided here at Farmor's school. 

Open Evening

Our Open Evening will be held on Thursday 30th September 4pm-7pm. There will be no requirement to pre book for this event. 

This is a wonderful opportunity to look around the school site, speak to our heads of department, subject teachers and support staff. It will provide a chance to learn more about the curriculum and view our facilities. Take a tour with one of our year 11 Prefects or sit in on one of the talks provided by our Headteacher Mr Matthew Evans.

There will be five timeslots for the talks. These will be located in the main hall and will be entry by ticket only. Tickets can be collected on arrival at the main entrance. Spaces will be limited in line with Covid19 guidelines.

Open Morning Tours

Our Open Morning Tours will be held on Tuesday 5th and Wednesday 6th October. To join on these tours, parents/carers will be required to book a timeslot.

Our Open Morning Tours will provide the pupil and one parent/carer with the opportunity to see the school during a normal working day. Due to limited numbers and to reduce the risk of transmission of Covid19 we ask that only one parent accompanies the pupil and that siblings do not accompany you.   Adults will be required to wear a facecovering whilst on site and hand sanitiser will be provided. Please arrive for your designated time slot, and if you do arrive early to site please may we ask that you wait in your vehicle until your allocated time. 

Bookings for our 2021 Open Morning Tours are now closed. If you have any questions with regards to Admissions for September 2022, please do not hesitate to contact Amanda Sampson on 01285 712302.

Application deadline - September 2022 intake

The deadline for entry to Farmor’s in September 2022 is October 31st 2021.  In September 2021 local authorities will send out information via your child’s school explaining how to apply for a secondary school placement.

Transition from primary school

The transition between primary and secondary education is a crucial period in a child’s education.  At Farmor's we have a number of activities to ensure that your child has a smooth transition, including two induction days, a visit to the majority of the primary schools to speak to the class teacher and students, a uniform trying on session and a parent information evening.

Year 6 Induction days

The Year 6 Induction Days take place during the summer term.  All pupils with a place at Farmor’s in Year 7 spend two full school days with us.  This gives them the opportunity to meet the Headteacher, Assistant Headteacher (Pastoral), Head of Year and Form Tutor.  Prior to their arrival they will have been assigned to their Tutor Groups for Year 7, so they are able to meet and start getting to know their new classmates.

Throughout the two days the students take part in activities that encourage the development of new friendships, building their confidence and enthusiasm for their arrival in September.  At the end of the second day they go home on the school buses that they will use in September, and this helps to allay any fears regarding transport.

Admissions to Years 8-11

Parents wishing to apply for a place in Years 8-11 are invited to make an appointment with Amanda Sampson, Head's PA, to discuss the move and be given a tour of the school.  Amanda Sampson can be contacted by either email or phone 01285 712302.  Full details of the admissions process are provided following a visit.
