Open Events

Our open events are designed to give you a flavour of what it is like to be part of the Freemen’s community with plenty of opportunity to meet and chat to our staff and pupils. Our Admissions Team will also always be available to answer any questions you may have about joining Freemen’s.

We have tried to arrange our events throughout the year, so that they are not only at a time to suit you, but also offer you and your child a variety of experiences. In November, for example, you can enjoy a real working day at the school or meet the Head over drinks and canapés. In May, we will let you loose with a map to explore the campus in your own way and at your own speed. Twice a year, we will invite current Year 1 or Year 2 students in for Freemen’s Fun: an afternoon of activities specifically designed for your child to discover Freemen’s for themselves.

Upcoming Events:

Open Evening: Wednesday 10 May 2017 6:45pm-8:30pm 

Rather than just give you a flavour of what it is like to be part of the Freemen’s community, we are going to give you the full Freemen’s experience.

 

This evening will not be like any other Open Evening. Instead, it will be your first day at Freemen’s. You will experience exactly what it is like to be a student at Freemen’s, with an Assembly, a variety of timetabled lessons, a lunch break and downtime in the Boarding House. You will be assigned buddies - current students - who will help settle you into the school routine and answer any questions you might have.  You will also be able to get involved in performances, experiments, practicals, sport and much more as you explore the campus.

 

Our Admissions Team will be available at the end of your day to talk through any remaining queries you may have about joining Freemen’s.

This event is now full. Please book into one of the other events in the calendar.

Sixth Form open evening: Thursday 21 September 2017 6:45pm-9pm

This evening has been specially arranged to inform you about the courses that are available for study at A Level, how the combination of subjects will make up the basis of future university applications and the common core of the Sixth Form curriculum, including the Enrichment Project, the Extended Project Qualification and our unique Free Minds programme.

You can register from 6:45pm in the Sixth Form Centre and the evening begins at 7pm in the Senior Assembly Hall with an introduction about the Sixth Form at Freemen's.  At 7:30pm, we will move over to the Haywood Centre when departments will deliver a carousel of short presentations / lessons and will be able to speak to you and your child.

We will ask your son or daughter to choose four presentations to attend; these will go on to 8:55pm. There is no formal end to the evening and you should feel free to depart once you have gathered all the information you need. We strongly recommend that students attend presentations that they should like to know more about and are considering, rather than simply those that they are certain they wish to take for A Level. Each department has also produced some literature on the content and structure of their subject's course of study.

As well as subject specialists, other members of staff who will be available to speak and to give advice include:  the Headmaster; the Academic Deputy; the Head of Sixth Form Careers; the Medical Application Coordinator and the Assistant Head of Sixth Form. Current Sixth Formers will also be on hand for a more informal take on life in the Sixth Form. Collectively, we hope to be able to offer a broad range of advice about Sixth Form choices and aspects of Sixth Form life.

Open Morning: Friday 29 September 2017 9:15am-11:30am

We also have some talks from the Headmaster, the Head of the Junior School and the Head of Boarding arranged for you. There will also be lessons, performances, experiments, practicals, sport and much more.
