Highly successful Open Evening
Categories: Parent's Information
William de Ferrers School came alive on Wednesday evening as our highly successful open evening took place. There was a tremendous buzz around the building with many pupils coming back to school for the evening to help in departments by giving demonstrations and answering questions.
As usual, our tour guides were superb ambassadors for the school and earned much praise from visitors for the professional way they conducted themselves.
We received many glowing compliments about the evening:
‘I would just like to pass on my congratulations to you, your team and to all the staff at WDF on a wonderful open evening yesterday. My son really enjoyed all the interactive activities and feels happy about joining next September. All the staff were very approachable, helpful and enthusiastic about their subject. I would also like to congratulate the year 7 and 13 students who spoke with such great confidence and enthusiasm at the introductory talk. It was great to see all the students helping, from the tour guides, to students in the different departments. I think it showed that the school has a great community spirit and students are happy at school and keen to show their work and knowledge’.
‘I attended the open evening with my daughter. I just wanted you to know what fabulous assets to your school our two guides were. Both boys praised the school so highly, they were full of information, answered all our questions and were very professional for the whole time we had them - nearly two hours! Both the school and the boy’s families should be very proud. Thank you for a lovely, informative evening’.
‘What a charming young man our tour guide was. He was very polite and did an amazing job of showing us around the school. We cannot believe he is only a year 8 student - very impressed!’
‘I have been to other schools open evenings - William de Ferrers is a hundred times better; no comparison a different league - what a great school!’
Thank you to all staff and students who helped make the evening such a great success.
