Our Open Mornings are from 9.30am to 11.30am on Thursday 21 November, Tuesday 21 January, Wednesday 25 March and Thursday 4 June.

Please email the school office to book your place admin@linksec.org.uk.

We ask that you arrive at 9.30am for the Principal’s presentation. Parking is available in the side roads adjacent to the school.  We advise parents/carers not to bring children to Open Mornings as they are designed for adults. If the school is the right setting for your child, a visit can be arranged at a later date.
