When are the local school open days?

by Editor Lowton and Golborne News

If your child is due to start primary school next September, or will be moving up to high school in the next year or so, you may be interested to find out more about which school will be right for you.

Over the coming months, our local primary and secondary schools will be opening their doors to prospective pupils and parents, to show you what they have to offer.

With luck, it’ll be the first time ‘in-person’ open days have been held in schools for two years, so it’ll be a fantastic chance to visit the settings and find out more about the ethos and atmosphere of each.

So, when do the local school open days take place?
