Thank you to the huge number of prospective pupils and families who came along to our annual Open Evening last week, it was an extremely well attended event and we were proud to showcase our wonderful pupils, facilities and opportunities offered at Springfield. Visitors sampled a real taste of Springfield including live rehearsals of our upcoming drama production, musical entertainment, indoor sports, cooking and textiles demonstrations. We were also proud to host stalls in our Main Hall this year giving more information about our House system, our Pupil Anti-Bullying Champions spoke to visitors about their role within the school and we were delighted that some of our Parent Ambassadors also gave up their time to speak about their experience of the school as parents. Thank you also to Portsmouth Admissions who were on hand as well to answer any admission queries. Visitors were able to view a huge variety of work on display in each of our subject departments. Our helpful Prefects and TGAs gave thorough tours of the school showcasing each subject area. Thank you to all the pupils, parents and staff involved you did a fantastic job.
We were delighted to receive feedback from parents:
"We recently attended your open evening with our 10 year old boy. We were shown around by a boy called Jake and I wanted to say how impressed we were with his behaviour and attitude! He was so polite and enthusiastic about the school, thank you so much to him for making our son feel comfortable and welcomed."
"We were delighted to receive this great feedback after our Open Morning/Evening - 'My sincere thanks to Ms C for her time and care in showing the group around your school this morning. She answered my questions very sensitively and both my daughter and I left feeling very positive about transition to secondary. I also want to mention Leah who showed us around during the opening evening last week. She was very honest, patient (while waiting for mug cakes!) and looked after us really well. Thank you Leah you are a fabulous credit to your school and I'm sure you are a great role model for other pupils!"
