Open Week 2021

Dear Prospective Families,

We are looking forward to welcoming Year 6 families to our Open Week at the end of September.

No booking required.

Year 5/6 EHCP Student tours/Q & A

We encourage, and welcome, all parents considering ABS for their child to attend one of our Open Mornings or to attend our Open Evening. This will give you a valuable insight into our whole school approach for students with AEN/SEND. If you would like to speak to a member of the Additional Educational Needs (AEN) Faculty about provision for your child, staff will be available as the following times:

Open Mornings: 9 – 9:15am and 10 – 10:30am (when the tours take place)

Open Evening: staff will be available all evening to discuss your child’s needs

We always advise parents to view/contact a number of schools to find the right school for their child.
