Taster & Experience Days for Years 2 & 3

For Year 3 and Year 4 Entry

At an OLA Taster Day children get to join in on a normal school day and be part of an actual class as well as meet their ‘buddy’ for when they start at OLA.

All Year 2 pupils who are seeking Year 3 entry and current Year 3 pupils seeking Year 4 entry are invited to attend a Taster Day.

At an OLA Experience Day children can visit our school on a Saturday to try a wide range of fun activities, meet our teachers and make new friends.

NEW Taster Day - Wednesday 1 December - for a real taste of Year 3 or Year 4 - just complete the form below.

Start the Taster Day with Assembly at 08h30, followed by a DT lesson, then cooking (yum).  Break for snacks and enjoy a delicious lunch in the dining room.
The afternoon will be filled with swimming (don’t forget your swimming kit), mosaics and a French lesson.  If you fancy trying the full day, you can even join an after school club activity to finish the day at 4pm.

But first watch these videos to hear why Lucien and Eden love OLA Lower School
