Vandyke Upper School Open Evening

6pm – 9pm, Thursday 5th October 2023

The Vandyke Upper School Open Evening took place on Thursday 5th October 2023, between 6pm and 9pm.

Our Open Evenings are an opportunity to meet staff and current students, tour the school and attend a talk with the Headteacher.

Tours can be taken with guides or you are welcome to tour on your own. Refreshments are available from our café throughout the evening. Headteacher talks take place throughout the evening and visitors receive a ticket on arrival for a timed slot. Teachers and staff are situated around the site to assist you and to answer any questions you may have.

If you were unable to attend the Open Evening, you are invited to visit the school on a normal school day on our Open Mornings. These will be held every school day from Monday 9th October 2023 to Friday 20th October 2023 from 9am to 11am. There is no need to book for these – simply arrive at the main school office on one of the Open Mornings at a time which is convenient for you. Please let your middle school know when your child will be absent for a tour.

If you are unable to attend one of our open mornings, please contact the school office, and we will happily arrange for you to have a tour of the school on a date which is convenient for you.

Vandyke is heavily over-subscribed, so it is important to submit your application before the deadline of 31 October 2023. Central Bedfordshire Council residents should apply using this online application form, and non-CBC applicants should apply through their local council.

We look forward to seeing you and your child on Thursday 5th October.
