      We are currently reviewing our schedule for next year regarding whether it is still worthwhile having an Open Day on a weekend compared to running a number of Open Mornings throughout the year. I’d be very grateful for any observations or advice from other schools as to whether you have changed how you run Open Days, the value of them vs the amount of work involved and if you’ve seen any difference in participation numbers if you’ve decided to not do an Open Day.

      Hi Andrea
      We are considering the same move due to a large increase in numbers at Open Mornings and a steady decline in those at Open Day. I am interested to see what others have to say!
      We used to get 10-15 families on Open Mornings and now we are getting 50-70, in previous years we have had well over 1000 at Open Day and this year was 800, a lot of which we think are current parents. So we are also looking for a solution to showcase student work to current parents.
