We hold an Open Evening annually, it’s a great opportunity to see the school and meet the team, pupils and staff are on hand to talk about life at Nailsea School. Our school Open Evening is usually held in Term 1.

As well the Open Evening event, potential parents and students are usually welcome to come and take a tour of the school, during a normal working day, these tours must be booked in advance and are available in Term 1.

Many students in our partner Primary Schools will already have visited Nailsea School to take part in various activities. An Induction Day is held in the summer term (usually Term 6), during which students in Year 6 opting to come to Nailsea School in September meet their Tutors and Heads of House, and are given a tour of the school. They also take part in a series of ‘taster’ lessons for the day and have lunch at the school.

All of our policies can be found on our Policy page

Once your child is aged 13 or over, we are required by law to pass on certain information to providers of youth support services in your area. This is the local authority support service for young people aged 13 to 19 in England. We must provide both the child’s and parent’s name(s) and address, and any further information relevant to the support services’ role.

However, if the child is over 16, the child (or the parent(s)) can ask that no information beyond names, address and your date of birth be passed to the support service.
