Virtual Open Events 2020

On Thursday 5th and Saturday 7th November 2020, Withington hosted its first-ever Whole School Virtual Open Events.

We would very much like to thank the parents and children who joined us for these live online events and are delighted to share the recording of the event that took place in our Junior School Hall on Saturday 7th November.

The recording is approximately one hour in length. We have also added separate links to the shorter video presentations that were shown during the open event.

Links to our Open Day booklets, for both Junior and Senior School admissions, are added after the video links.
