How do you choose the right secondary education for your child?

At Purbrook Park, we can show you what makes us such a friendly and happy school, by inviting you to come and see us – both on our organised Open Evening on Tuesday 22nd September 2020 from 6pm - 8pm, and on our Open Day on Wednesday 23rd September 2020 from 8.30am - 2.40pm. We also welcome visits at any time in the school year for your own personal tour. There are plenty of opportunities for you and your son or daughter to get a feel for Purbrook Park, and for everything we have to offer.

We know that choosing a secondary school can be a daunting process. For guidance, Hampshire County Council provides some useful information on:

  • Deciding which school to apply to
  • The application procedure for in year applications
  • School admission policies

If you are seeking a Year 7 place in September 2019 as a late application, then please contact the school directly.
