“Really enjoyed the headteachers speech, very engaging and an absolute delight to hear how passionate she is about the school and its students”.
“I think that it’s excellent that you’ve taken the time to arrange this for the children, particularly when so many other schools are only offering online events. The fact that you have done this and also the content of the open evening has made me very likely to put your school down as our first choice. The video link of the new year 7s, the head girl talk, as well as Mrs French’s presentation has convinced me that an all-girls school will be a good choice for my daughter”.
“I felt the Headteacher's presentational was particularly inspiring for my daughter to watch. We were shown around the school by the Head of the lower school and she spoke very well about each department. Generally impressed”.
“I was very impressed with the school and think my daughter would be very happy there”!
“A very informative and COVID safe tour. Thank you”!
“Really appreciate the school going above and beyond to help my daughter make an informed decision about her secondary school choices. Please pass my thanks on to all staff and pupils that made this possible”.
“My daughter found the school very impressive and it has definitely given her food for thought on her school choices”.
“I thought the event was really well organised and it is just a shame other schools are not following in your footsteps to allow pupils to view the school”.
“I was extremely pleased when we visited the school. We were made to feel welcome, I liked how all members of staff engaged with my daughters as well as myself. It was extremely nice under the circumstances to actually be able to visit the school unlike most others. Thank you very much as we know how much time and effort went in to planning and preparing these open evenings”.
“It was great that you were still able to hold the event. Would have loved to be able to see the school “in action” but totally understand why that was not possible. We will visit again hopefully when the school is more back to normal, we are looking for entry in 2022 not 2021 so still time. We were very impressed though”.
“It looks a wonderful setting for girls to achieve the best education”.
“Totally impressed with the Heads speech, being so new to the school, it’s pretty obvious she has plans and a vision for the school. The evening was very well planned and fantastic that open evenings still went ahead, it is so hard to choose a school without actually visiting and getting a feel for it so thank you”!
“The fact that the school organised an Open Event, despite having to put a lot more effort and time into it due to COVID, reflected very positively on the senior leadership. Thank you”.
“Well done to the SLT team and teachers for enabling this event to take place whilst other schools have simply used virtual tours. You conducted a well informed and safe guide for us and our daughter and we are extremely grateful for the efforts the school made to make her feel welcome”.
“Wonderful School, welcoming and informative! We are keeping our fingers crossed that we will get a place”.
“Wonderful to be able to have a look around was extremely impressed and my daughter wants it as her first choice! Fingers crossed”.
“We really enjoyed the tour and the presentations were brilliant. Thank you”.
“Thoroughly enjoyed the tour and the fact they were even offered as most schools aren’t doing physical tours at all. I found the headteacher to be extremely engaging, enthusiastic, and passionate and all the other teachers present were also extremely helpful and easy to talk to with a strong passion for the school. Overall, myself and my daughter were very impressed with the school as a whole”.
“I thought the whole afternoon was well thought through and organised. Well done CHSFG for opening your doors to us and making what should be an exciting time for our girls. The head of Year 7 was very helpful and informative too. Thank you very much”.
