Webinar - Going to an Open Day? Questions to Ask
Thursday 30th September at 11am

How do you weigh up different School offers?  What key questions should you ask of a School?  Should you involve your child in School visits?  Hear from Naomi Bartholomew, Prep School Headmistress, Julie Micklethwaite, Prep School Deputy Head and Kirsty Meredith, Senior Housemistress so you can feel prepared. 

The purpose of our event is to share with you as Primary educationalists questions you might like to ask a School you are considering.  These might be about child:teacher ratios, extra-curricular provision, how parents are kept informed of their child's progress, pastoral care or settling-in routines.  Of course, we are proud of St Catherine’s Prep School and would love you to consider us, but this isn’t a virtual open event for St Catherine’s. It’s an info-share and Q&A to support you in finding the right School for your child.
