Open Event Information Featured

Our open mornings are now fully booked.

If you did not get the opportunity to book a place at one of our five open mornings, we will be sharing some digital resources for prospective families online.

We hope to have this information available on our website from the 27th of September.

Please note we are not keeping a waiting list and there will be no additional sessions added.


At Alexandra Park School, our cohesive and thriving school community matters most to us and is our greatest source of pride. Each year we look forward to those occasions where we can invite our wider community into the school to experience first-hand the positive atmosphere we’ve created.

It is therefore with regret that we have taken the decision to not hold our Open Evening this year. We will always prioritise the health, safety and education of our school community. Our decision recognises the continued risks associated with the pandemic. Inviting more than 1,500 visitors into the school will lead to increased sickness and absence and ultimately disrupt learning.

We absolutely love holding this event and appreciate that the cancellation of the Open Evening may be disappointing to those in our wider community, who value the opportunity to find out more about what we offer at APS. To this end, we would direct families to our website to access a range of resources, containing information about our school. Although these documents and videos cannot capture the amazing ethos and positive atmosphere that makes APS such a wonderful place to work and learn, we trust that they will provide families with access to the essential information needed to make important decisions about secondary school choice. We hope that families will understand the reasons for our decision. We are not a football stadium or music festival but a school community and our focus is on delivering the very best education to those children in our care.

In place of the Open Evening, we will be extending our series of Open Mornings. These will run each morning through the week of 27th September, from 9.20 am to 10.50 am. The morning will offer an opportunity to hear the Headteacher and a tour of our school. Visitor numbers will be regulated and are strictly by ticket only. We would ask that only those families with a child in Year 6 or Year 5 attend.

We sincerely look forward to welcoming you into our school.
