Open Day 2023 - FAQs

We understand that choosing a Secondary School for your child is a big and very personal decision – for both you and them! We continue to be presented with additional challenges due to the pandemic, hence offering a hybrid platform to showcase our school this year. 

Will we be able to attend a physical Open Evening at the school this year?

Yes, our whole school Open Evening will be held on Thursday 28th September 2023.

How will we access any virtual Open Day?

Our updated 2023 content will launch on Thursday 28th September 2023 to coincide with our physical Open Evening and can be found at the top of this page to view at your leisure. 

What if we could not attend due to work/other commitments?

We welcome visits during the school day at a time/date which is convenient to you. 

If you would like to book an appointment to see Miss K Waythe, another member of SLT and/or have a tour of the school during the school day, please email info@chepstowschool.net

What if we would like to speak 1:1 with a member of staff?

Dim problem! (No Problem!)

We welcome visits during the school day and would be more than happy to accommodate a 1:1 meeting/tour of the school during the school day or at a time/date which is convenient to you.

Where can we view information ahead of/after the Open Evening?

Our website is the best place to find information about our school.

Our School Prospectus can be viewed here.

Our Governors Annual Report to Parents can be viewed here

We also have a dedicated Transition page (and sub-pages), which we hope you will find useful.
