Moving on to secondary school in Camden 2021

Is your child due to start secondary school in September 2021? Find out more about what Camden schools can offer your child at open events taking place this term.

Camden secondary schools, which are all rated either 'good' or 'outstanding' by Ofsted, will each hold their own open days and evenings - though several of these will now be held 'virtually' online.

Please check the school's website or call the school office to check if the event is still on and how it is being held - face to face or 'virtually' online. You can view or download a poster with upcoming dates (several of these events on the poster will now take place virtually or they have moved dates / times, as set out below. Some schools are holding additional events too).

Camden School for Girls will be replacing their open days and open evening this year with a virtual open event, which will be available on the school's website from Wednesday 16 September. The aim is to give parents, carers and children as full an impression of the school as they would receive from visiting the school in person, including a 'virtual tour' of the school.

For details of Acland Burghley School's open events, please visit the school's website.

Parliament Hill School will run a virtual Open Evening on 24 September. The open mornings which were planned and are mentioned on the above poster will now take place at the end of the school day instead on 29 and 30 September and 1 October. The school will run an additional Open Day on Saturday 3 October. Booking information has now been published on the school's website.

La Sainte Union Catholic Secondary School's open mornings will be as advertised in our poster and secondary admissions guide but will now be held virtually online. The school's open evening on Thursday, 24 September, from 4 to 7pm, will go ahead as advertised but is by ticketed entry only - find out more and book your place via the school's website here (note: this open evening is now fully booked so if you were hoping to visit please book onto one of the school's virtual open mornings instead).

William Ellis School is also looking forward to welcoming prospective parents of Year 7 pupils to their open evening on Thursday, 24 September, from 4.30pm to 8pm. Visit the school's website to book your place.

Maria Fidelis Catholic School is hosting an open event on Saturday, 10 October. Find out more and book your place.

Regent High School will be running an Open Week from Monday 12 October to Friday 16 October, with daily tours from 9am to 10.20am. Bookings have now opened on Eventbrite, with a maximum of 30 places available per morning.

Meet the Parents also holds informal forums for primary parents at local schools across the borough, some of which will also be held 'virtually' online and some face to face.
