OPEN EVENING
We have taken the very difficult decision to cancel this year’s Open Evening. We are still offering tours of the school and have increased the number of dates and times so these can be done safely. This should help to spread the number of people visiting the school, meaning we can help ensure there are fewer guests attending each tour.
We are aware of the importance of this event but trust that you will understand the need for caution in these challenging and unpredictable times.

OPEN DAY TOURS
There will be daily tours of our school from Monday 4th – Friday 15th October 2021. Led by our friendly and knowledgeable Student Leader Ambassadors, visitors have the opportunity to see Belvidere in action on a normal working day and to meet with a member of our senior leadership team

The tour schedule will be as below:
Monday 4th October - 9.15/11.30/16.00
Tuesday 5th – 9.15/11.30/16.00
Wednesday 6th – 9.45/11.45
Thursday 7th – 9.15/11.30/16.00
Friday 8th – 9.15/11.30

Monday 11th - 9.15/11.30/16.00
Tuesday 12th – 9.15/11.30/16.00
Wednesday 13th – 9.45/11.45
Thursday 14th – 9.15/11.30/16.00
Friday 15th – 9.15/11.30

Please contact the school on (01743) 235073 or email reception@belvidere.shropshire.sch.uk to arrange an appointment. Booking is essential for our Open Day Tours as places are limited. Alternative arrangements can be made if dates/times are not convenient.

Please note: We are continually monitoring the guidance and any changes to restrictions and if necessary, may need to adjust our plans accordingly.
