Year 5 Taster Days

To assist children and parents in choosing their prefered secondary school in October 2019, we run Taster days for Year 5 pupils in the Summer Term. This year they will be on Monday 24 June and Tuesday 25 June 2019 for all Primary Schools and on Tuesday 2 July 2019 for our Cluster schools only (i.e. Breamore, FJS, Hale, Hyde, Western Downland).

This will be the opportunity for children to come into and experience Burgate style lessons and school environment. The days will run from 08:30 to 15:15.

Parent tours will be run in the mornings (9:00 to 10:00) and afternoons (14:00-15:00) on these days.

An online booking form will be posted here nearer the time.

How to apply for a place in one of our current year groups

Please contact Miss C Connolly (Admissions Officer) in the first instance if you wish to make an appointment for a tour of The Burgate School and an opportunity to meet with the Headteacher.
