VIDEO: Ribston Hall to offer virtual open days

Ribston Hall High School in Gloucester is offering virtual open days online to girls in year 5 and their parents next week.

Starting secondary school can be a worrying time, but even more so if you can't look around schools to help make your choice.

That's why Ribston is asking families to book one of its virtual sessions on Monday 22nd or Wednesday 24th June. It is holding sessions between 9 and 10am and also between 5 and 6pm on the two days, to make sure as many families as possible can take part.

Spaces are subject to availability and anyone who wants to take part should email RHHS@ribstonhall.gloucs.sch.uk with the subject Open Day Booking. Please specify which date and time you would like to attend, then the school will send a Zoom invitation.

Each session will feature:

  • Speeches from the headteacher, Mrs Sarah Colombini, assistant headteacher, Mr Barnard, and head of year 7, Mrs Hay
  • Insight from year 7 students on what it's like to be at Ribston
  • A live Q&A

Ribston is also reminding parents of year 5 children that, if they want their child to attend any of the county's grammar schools from September 2021, that they must register for the entrance test by 30th June.
