Open Day Events for 2022 Entry

Following the Government announcement on Tuesday 14 June confirming a pause at Step 3 restrictions for 4 weeks and due the restrictions on large group gatherings under Step 3 of the road map to recovery,  in the interest of public safety we have reluctantly had to CANCEL ALL 2021 Open Day sessions planned.

During these unprecedented times, we are sorry not to be able to welcome you in person as planned

Our Virtual Tour and online welcome from the Headteacher together with a collection of sound bites and resources give a flavour of all that St. Olave's has to offer.
