Seven schools across the Wimborne area are opening their doors throughout the autumn to prospective parents.
The schools of Wimborne Academy Trust have arranged open mornings and evenings so parents can see for themselves the excellent education provision for children in the area.
The schools are Witchampton First School in the village of Witchampton and also the first schools of Hayeswood, St John’s, Merley and Colehill in and near Wimborne.
Also part of the education offer is the two middle schools – St Michael’s and Allenbourn.
CEO of Wimborne Academy Trust, Liz West, said: “We are a forward-looking trust, committed to excellence in learning so that all pupils realise their potential.
“At all our schools we provide creative and innovative learning for our children and we work together to provide a real sense of community.
“All our schools have been rated as either Good or Outstanding by Ofsted but to get a real flavour of what we are like we would urge all interested parents to come and see for themselves.”
