Dear potential Highams Park Student and Parent
I am delighted to inform you that the links to our virtual open evening at Highams Park School are now up and running and available for you to view from the comfort of your own home! It is a huge disappointment that we are not able to welcome you in person to tour the school in our normal fashion. However, hosting 800+ families from 30+ different schools from all across the borough is just not possible with the current COVID restrictions placed upon us.
I hope that you will find the selection of short media clips helpful to inform your choice of school for next year. I am immensely proud of our students and staff who have put this bank of resources together, as well as those who appear in front of the camera. Thanks, should also go to those who have worked technically behind the scenes to create our own virtual tour. Perhaps your son or daughter might be able to help us create next year’s version!
I know that many of you have been able to book onto our socially distanced tours. I appreciate that these are limited in number and restricted to times when our students are not present in the school, but hopefully for those of you who are not familiar with our school they will still provide the opportunity for your children to get a feel for the school. If you have booked onto one of these tours please, can I stress the need for you to wear a mask and maintain social distancing from one another as you arrive. There are markings at the front of the school to assist with this, and hand sanitiser as you enter the main hall. Your temperature will be taken by a member of staff, on your arrival. I look forward to meeting some of you on Thursday 15th October 2020, Friday, 16th October 2020 or Saturday, 17th October 2020 of next week and in the meantime hope that you enjoy our virtual tour.
