We understand that choosing a secondary school is a very important decision for every family. On this page we hope that you will find information about life at Baines School and what families of prospective Baines students can expect if you join us. Over the coming weeks we will add videos to provide you with further information about how we work with our students and what makes us a great school.
Reading about our school cannot replicate understanding how our school feels when you walk through our doors and see our pupils learning. In place of our Open Evening we hope you find this series of videos useful.
We will host Moving Up Evenings later in the year for Year 5 families. You may also find the videos on our Transition page of use.
Here is your personal invite to our Virtual Open Evening that will be live at 6pm on Thursday 15th October 2020 using the link below!
Mrs Chapman (Headteacher) will be hosting the event live and our Senior Leadership Team will be on hand to answer questions during the event.
