BLACON High School will be encouraging children to climb walls this weekend.
The school will be opening its doors this Saturday, October 11, between 10am and noon to offer workshops to prospective students and their parents and enable them to have a taster of what life is like at Blacon High.
Workshops on offer include creative writing, art, maths, science and sport, including a chance to use the school’s climbing wall.
The event is new this year, and supplements the school’s open day and open evening events.
All activities are free, and parents can either stay with their children or drop them off and collect them after the workshops.
Blacon High School learning manager Adrian Carr said: “We want to offer prospective students and parents the chance to sample a range of activities, and to have the opportunity to get to know staff.
“As a school, we encourage any prospective parents and children to come in, have a look around, talk to staff and current students and really just see for themselves what our school is like.”
Blacon High School has recently improved its examination results, with a huge increase of over 15% in terms of 5A*-C at GCSE this year.
Any parent wishing to reserve a place at the workshops should contact the school office on 01244 371475.
