What a fantastic Open Evening. We had so many prospective parents and students come through our doors to experience the Strode’s Open Evening – it felt like it was the busiest ever!
All three of the Principal’s talks ended with standing room only, both in the Learning Centre and the overflow room. Staff reported being busy all night with a really positive feel to the whole event. The support given by our student guides was outstanding as they came back to help in the evening and show people around.
Displays and interactive workshops were set up across the College and were supported with non-stop Performing Arts students putting on music in the Tercentenary building and dance and drama in the studios, including the impromptu cup song displays. Science had wonderful experiments taking place while the Business students took the opportunity to earn more money by selling cakes and sweets for their £10.00 business challenge.
Prospective parents and students went away impressed with what they saw and I am sure they will be back with us for our induction day.
