Our Lady's Abingdon - Taster Days for Years 2 and 3 Pupils

Taster Days for Years 2 and 3 Pupils

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.

Taster Days 2022:

  • Wednesday 11 May
  • Wednesday 30 November

Taster Day - for a fun taste of Year 3 or Year 4 - just complete the form below.

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 Saturday at our school; try a wide range of activities, meet our teachers and make new friends.

Taster Day Calendar:
