We are delighted that so many of you are joining us for our Open Evening on Thursday 5th October.

You will have the opportunity to visit our teaching Departments in school to see all the amazing work they do and the children will be able to complete our ‘Balshaw’s Passport’ and take part in activities. As we are expecting such a large number of visitors, we would politely ask you to follow the arrival times that you booked to make sure that you get the best opportunity to tour the building and spend time in the Departments.

There will be presentations in the hall at 6.10pm, 7pm and 7.45pm offered on a first come, first served basis.

Staff from the Lancashire County Council Admissions Team will be available on the evening for you to speak to.

Please remember that there will be no parking on site. We ask our visitors to make their way to school either on foot or by using public transport where possible. However, there is also the option of parking and walking from Tesco Extra on Church Road and Runshaw College (please enter via Car Park B&C and note that the Runshaw College gates will be locked at approx. 9.30pm)

If you have booked a place and are unable to attend then please contact school so places can be made available for other visitors.

We look forward to welcoming you to our school and hope that you all enjoy your evening with us at Balshaw's!

Please note: on Thursday 5th October school will close at 1.30pm for our students and the School Office will also close at this time.
