Charters Ancaster Open Morning
Charters Ancaster Preparatory School and Nursery opened its doors last Saturday morning to prospective parents.
Visitors were shown around by senior pupils and the guests were impressed by their competence and polite manners.
The school's youngsters had arranged stunning displays including model bridges made by older children and model oxen made by the reception class as part of their Chinese New Year Celebrations.
Guests also viewed the newly created all-weather pitch and nature trail, with one parent commenting: "It's so nice to see outdoor activities play such a major part in Charters Ancasters curriculum".
Great interest was shown in the Key stage One scholarships for Sports, Music and the performing arts.
Mrs Miriam Black, head of Key stage one, said: "I was surprised by the number of grandparents who are supporting their grandchildren's education, it falls in line with the schools family ethos and helps to nurture a caring environment in the school."
The purpose roomy built nursery was also well received and was adorned by the nursery children's colourful artwork.
Due to the snow the next open day will now be on Tuesday Feb 10 from 9-2pm.
Any parents or grandparents who are looking for reception places for their children this September or next are invited to a prospective parents cheese and wine evening on Wednesday 11th Feb at 7.30pm.
Academic scholarships are available for current year 3 children and there will be exams on Saturday 7th Feb. Full details of all school events can be obtained from the school office 01424 216670 or are on the school website www.chartersancaster.com
