Marriotts School Open Evening Event – 29th September 2020

In light of the current Pandemic we are not yet clear as to whether schools will be able to host Open Evening events in school.

If schools are allowed to do this Marriotts School Open Evening will take place on:

Tuesday 29th September

The Headteacher, Ms Honnor, will be presenting talks at: 6.15pm, 7.00pm and 7.45pm

If schools are unable to host live events we will be releasing a virtual event (date TBA and will be common across Stevenage schools), including the Headteacher’s presentation and some form of virtual tour.

In both cases tours will take place in the week commencing 5th October. In the case where it is not possible to host an on site event, tours will be extended for a further week into week commencing 12th October, and will include an opportunity to see lessons and meet the Headteacher.
