Our Lady's Abingdon - Experience Days & Taster Days

Experience Days & Taster Days

Making the right decision on the best school for your child is a very important issue for parents. To help, OLA provides Experience Days and Taster Days for children and their parents to experience what a school day at OLA is all about.

We provide Taster Days for Year 2 and 3 children considering entry into Year 3 and 4 in our Lower School. On request Taster Days may also be arranged for children considering entry into any year group at any time.

We provide Experience Days for Year 5 children considering entry into Year 7 in our Senior School.  We also provide a Year 10 OLA 6th form experience day.

At an OLA Experience Day children can try a wide range of activities, meet our teachers and make new friends. At an OLA Taster Day children get to join in and be part of an actual class and meet their ‘buddy’ for when they start at OLA.

Years 2-3 Taster Days

Research has shown that between the ages of 7 and 8 children develop the attitudes, abilities and relationships that help them to succeed in education. It is therefore important for your child to be in the right school, receiving the right stimulus to direct this development.

For a fun taste of Years 3 or 4 OLA warmly invites children in Years 2 and 3 to experience a day at our school; join in on classes, try a wide range of activities, meet our teachers and make new friends.
