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. 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. 

These events get booked up quickly, so please book early to avoid disappointment.

Upcoming Events:   

coffee morning for deciding families: Wednesday 12 february 2020 10:00am - 11:30am 

Do you need one last look at Freemen's before sending back your acceptance form? Join us for a coffee, a chance to chat with staff and have a final tour of the school. A booking form for this event will be available once the 2020 offers have been made.

Discover Freemen's (for children in Year 5): Friday 6 March 2020 9:45am - 11:40am or 2:00pm - 3:45pm 

Join us for a morning or afternoon of fun activities to discover what Freemen's is really like.

This day is specifically designed for current Year 5 students who want to join Freemen's in Year 7.

We have a maximum of 20 places in the morning and 20 places in the afternoon. We will run a waiting list too. Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis.

Freemen's Fun (for children in Year 1 from september 2019): Thursday 30 April 2020 4:30pm - 5:45pm   

Join us for our free after school activity session for children who are in Year 1 (from September 2019) at their current school. Pupils are invited to join the fun and take part in two of the following activities (with a third selected in reserve): 

  • Acting Up a fun drama session 
  • Art Attack - getting creative with arts and crafts
  • Cool Computing - designing a picture on the computer
  • Game on - lively PE games
  • Musical Maestros - creating music with percussion
  • Young Investigators - fun science experiments

We do our utmost to allocate children to their first two choices, but places will be allocated on a first come first served basis so it is advisable to choose a third activity in reserve. Each activity lasts approximately 30 minutes and parents and siblings are welcome to stay and enjoy refreshments in our Sixth Form Centre, whilst their children are enjoying the fun. The Admissions Team will be on hand to answer any questions about the admissions process and current parents from our Freemen's School Association (FSA) will be available to chat about what The School community has to offer.

Places are limited, so booking is essential. Places can be reserved by completing the form below. On booking, we will contact you again closer to the event with final details.
