Open Evening 2021 - Cancelled

I am very sorry that we have had to take the decision to cancel our face to face open evening planned for 24th November. We had initially postponed the event due to a high number of Covid cases in school and after receiving advice from Public Health England. We had hoped to be able to re-schedule for the above date but, unfortunately, cases remain high in school and in Central Bedfordshire as a whole, therefore, the advice from Public Health remains the same.

Although we will not be able to hold a full open evening, we will be able to have tours for single groups during the school day. These will be available throughout weeks commencing 22nd and 29th November. If you would like to visit, you can book by contacting the school by telephone (01582 616400) or email: We can have a maximum of four groups touring the school at any one time so please state your preferred times to visit. We will do our utmost to accommodate all requests to visit.

If you arrange a visit, your family group must be a maximum of three people.  Permission must be sought from your child’s current school if you would like them to accompany you. You will be asked to wear a face covering unless medically exempt and we ask that you take a lateral flow test in the 24 hours prior to your visit.

We will be keeping to strict time slots, starting at 9am. Tours will take a maximum of 30 minutes as, in order to reduce contacts, we want to avoid lesson changeover periods and break and lunch times.

I am very sorry we are unable to hold the open evening as we had planned but I hope you will understand that the safety of pupils, parents, staff and their families has to be our highest priority.

Thank you for considering Arnold as a future school for your child and I look forward to seeing you soon.

Yours sincerely

Steve Kelly
