Virtual Year 6 Open Evening

Welcome to our Virtual Year 6 Open Evening

Unfortunately, we are unable to hold our usual open evening for year 6 pupils and parents this year.

Instead, we have published a range of information to help you to get to know the school so that you can make an informed choice when you complete the application form in the coming weeks.

Please see below for information on the school. This includes a virtual tour, an overview of the different subject areas, details on the admissions process and an outline of how we support pupils through the transition to secondary school. Please do also browse the rest of the website, particularly the details on last year’s transition process.

Subject Information

Year 6 Virtual Open Evening – Subject Booklet

Click on the link above to view information about the different subject areas. It includes a curriculum overview for key stage 3 (years 7, 8 and 9) and key stage 4 (years 10 and 11). You can read about what pupils learn in each subject, the skills they develop in doing so, opportunities beyond the classroom and where studying each subject might take pupils when they leave Rushcliffe.


We hope that you have enjoyed your virtual visit to Rushcliffe and found it helpful in assisting you in making an informed decision on secondary education.
