Open Days


Our Open Days provide potential students and their families with a great opportunity to find out more about what it is like to study at Turton. Children from local schools should attend on the day allocated on their letter of invite. Children and parents from other primary schools are welcome to attend one of the Open Days.

About the Open Days

Parents and prospective students have the opportunity to see the school on a typical working day. These days are organised in conjunction with our feeder primary schools so that Year 6 classes are not disrupted.

If any prospective parent is unable to attend on these days, appointments for tours can be organised at other times by prior arrangement.

Visitors are always welcome to the school. It would be helpful if appointments could be made at times when staff concerned are not teaching. We are happy to organise tours around the school at any time by prior arrangement.

Getting to Turton

Car Parking

Parents bringing their children to school are asked NOT to come on to the premises with their vehicles in the interests of safety. All vehicles stopped on school premises must be parked in marked parking bays.

The area adjacent to Chapeltown Road is used by school buses dropping off and picking up students. It can easily become congested and we wish to do everything we can to minimise the chance of accidents. Parents are also reminded of the parking restrictions on both Chapeltown Road and Bromley Cross Road, and are asked to show particular caution at times when students are entering or leaving the school.

Parents arranging to collect students from school at the end of the day are asked NOT to use the car park on Bromley Cross Road and to wait until after 3.15 pm, so that space will be available on the Chapeltown Road Car Park. Students are then less likely to be walking through the areas and buses will have left the site.

Please note that there is a one-way system for the Chapeltown Road entrances; vehicles should enter the school grounds by the lower entrance, and leave by the top exit.
