Our Virtual Open Days: what to look out for ​​​​​​​

Our first Virtual Open Day is fast approaching, and you might be wondering what to ask and look out for on the day.

Here are some helpful tips to get the most out of the event.

Check the format

Make sure you don’t miss out on any part of the day by familiarising yourself with the format beforehand.

Sat 3 Oct, 2020, 10am

  • Welcome from our Headmaster, Dr John Price
  • Virtual tour with our pupils
  • Live Q&A with Head of Senior School, Mrs Clare Tilley

Be prepared  

In recent months we’ve all learned how much we rely on the internet and technology, but also its limitations. We’ve found Microsoft Teams is a great platform for our virtual events and to ensure a smooth start to the day, check out our handy guide on how to get set up below. 

Top tip: Accessing Teams using a laptop or computer will give you a bigger, better view of the tour than your mobile phone.

Virtual Tour

To get a real feel for what life is like at Worksop College, you will be virtually toured by our students. Listen closely to Max, Clarissa and Kristian as they take you through the school from their perspective.   

Don’t be scared to ask questions

During the Live Q&A you will have the opportunity to write questions to our Head of Senior School, Mrs Clare Tilley in the Teams chat box.

Make a note of any questions that arise before or during the event and if you have a burning question – ask! It’s likely someone else is thinking the same!  

Book a family visit

Our virtual event will give you a taster of life at Worksop College, we encourage you to follow this up with a family visit (up to six people). Found out more  HERE
