Open Day 2004

In the afternoon of Sunday 16th May 2004, Ellesmere College gates will be flung open wide for visitors. In an academic year that has seen the arrival of 8-year-old pupils to join a new Year 4 class and the start of building work on the School's new Sports Centre, there is much for the College to share with visitors old and new.


The College encourages anyone looking for a new school in the area for their children to join them for the afternoon. Former pupils, "Old Ellesmerians' and existing parents are also being invited to come and have a look around the School. Ellesmere College offers a caring all-round education and entry is possible at all levels of the school. The Lower School caters for children from Year 4 to 8 and occupies the same beautiful seventy-acre rural site as the main school. This offers regular opportunities for all classes to use the outstanding facilities available throughout Ellesmere College.


In the Middle School pupils prepare for their GCSE and in the Sixth Form pupils study for their all-important A-levels studies. Their educational experience is enhanced by a range of co-curricular activities to develop individual talents in other areas such as sport, music and drama.  


Pupils may board from Year 6, giving pupils aged from 10 years the opportunity to live in this stimulating and caring environment on a weekly or full-time basis.


The College's traditional strengths in Sport and Culture are ingrained at all levels of College life. Exceptional opportunities exist to take part in a wide range of sporting, dramatic, musical and other adventurous activities.


After-school activities and a homework session are available until 5.30pm each day. A dedicated daily bus service transports pupils from Nantwich, Tarporley Chester, Oswestry, Shrewsbury, Whitchurch, Market Drayton and Wrexham.


Brendan Wignall, Headmaster of Ellesmere College and his team welcome all interested parties to visit on Sunday 16th May 2004 between 2pm and 4pm. .
