Open Evening 2018

Posted on: 12/10/2018

Last night the School welcomed prospective students and their families to the annual Open Evening, which showcases the fantastic facilities, teaching and learning and success of current students.

Year 7 students acted as knowledgeable tour guides whilst Year 9 - 11 students were on hand to demonstrate some of the great lessons. 

The English department held murder mystery activities and welcomed families into their Shakespeare room.  Maths revealed how to create fractals with different coloured paper and students were able to work on MyMaths through homework and games and complete quizzes on iPads.

Science had a fascinating array of displays in physics and chemistry with biology showing the complexity of dissection.

Entertainment was provided by the School’s talented music, drama and dance students with opportunities for the visiting Year 6s to take part. Displays in the PE department included gymnastics and demonstrations of table tennis and indoor rowing.

The Executive Headteacher, Ms Cardus, spoke about the School’s commitment to raising aspirations and achievement for all students and she was supported by the Head Boy and Head Girl, along with two Year 7 students who gave accounts of their transition experience to The Charles Dickens School.

Ms Cardus said "The Charles Dickens School is a good school and hugely popular. We are constantly seeking ways to improve to become “outstanding”. Our students are true ambassadors of the School.  They were very keen and proud to showcase their school to prospective students/parents and loved to tell them all about us. We recommend and encourage prospective students/parents to visit the school next week for our Open Mornings to see the School in action on a normal working day.”

If you were unable to attend the Open Evening the School is opening its doors on Monday 15, Tuesday 16 and Thursday 18 October 2018 between 9:00am and 11:00am so please drop in for a tour to see the fantastic facilities and the learning opportunities that could lie ahead for your child.
