Open Evening

We hope that you and your family are all safe and well and that the start of the new academic year has been a positive one for you. It has been an energetic and exciting start for us here at Great Sankey High School and our students, especially our new year 7 cohort, have started the year with positive attitudes, are full of enthusiasm and ready to learn.

Although our year 7 students have only just joined Great Sankey High, the time has already come for us to begin preparation for next year’s intake. With this in mind, we would like to invite you and your son/daughter to our GSHS Open Evening, and this year we are delighted to have the opportunity to offer both a virtual tour of our school and an onsite tour of our school.

Virtual Open Evening

The online virtual tour will be available on our website from Thursday 7th October and families can view the materials at any time. If you have any questions from this event, please contact school via the details below and a member of our Transition team will be in touch.

You can visit our Virtual Open Evening site here.

Onsite Open Evening

In previous years, our Headteacher has delivered a formal talk at the start of the evening for all families, however, to follow safety protocols and reduce the risk of Covid transmission, this will not be possible this year. Alternatively, we are offering a guided tour around GSHS by our student ambassadors and GSHS staff with an address from Mr Shannon on our website. This will give you the opportunity to visit a variety of departments, especially our recently built, state of the art Science block and purpose built, fully equipped Sports Hall.

The guided tours will be by appointment times only and, to manage numbers, we are requesting that only 1 parent and 1 year 6 student from each family attends the event. The tours will take place every 20 minutes and the first tour will start at 3.30pm and the last tour will be at 6.10pm. To book your allocated place, please see the links below. Please note, for the guided onsite tours there will be parts of the tour that are outside so please dress accordingly for this.

If you have any further queries, please do not hesitate to contact us via or via telephone 01925 724118.

We look forward to welcoming you and your child to Great Sankey High School.
