Welcome to The Firs School
The Firs School welcomes you to our website. On our site you will learn about The Firs School and why we could be the right choice for your child. The Firs is a Co-educational primary school for children between three and eleven with a well-balanced curriculum, experienced and qualified staff, an excellent academic record and caring atmosphere. Follow the links to the left of the page to find out more about the Firs School, our current school calendar and our latest news.
If you're thinking of entering your child for Reception in 2014 then register for our Reception Taster days this year. Your child will get to do lots of interesting activities, make some art and listen to a story and even have a snack. As for parents, coffee and biscuits will be provided in the library along with a free wifi link if you need to carry on with business (or pleasure). A tour of the school will also be offered for those who haven't seen it. This is now the normal route for entry to Reception. If your child is in The Firs Kindergarten we will be arranging many sessions for them in Reception to get used to what happens in "Big School", but if you'd like to be around when they have a session please let the teachers know. We have set aside 4 initial days for Tue 19th Nov, Thu 16th Jan, Wed 12th Feb and Thu 13th Mar. If you'd like to register for a session please fill in the form below or contact the school office.
Firs School Reception Taster Mornings
As last year instead of a single assessment in January we have a number of taster mornings. Children who will be ready for reception in September 2014 come into the school for a morning to do some activities and meet the teachers. Assuming all goes well we will offer your child a place. If you would like to book a place please contact the school office or fill in the on-line form.
