Year 5 Taster Day

Is your child in Year 5 and considering a Bethany School education?



We are delighted to announce that we have a date for our popular Year 5 Taster Day. The day will take place on Friday 28th June 2024. There is no charge for the day, which will be organised by our specialist teaching staff supported by some of our senior pupils, and lunch will be included. The day will begin with registration from 9.45am, with the first workshops starting at 10am, and the day finishes by 3pm.


Places are limited and will be offered on a first come, first served basis. The aim of these activities is to give children with an interest in Bethany, and those who have a particular aptitude or enthusiasm for any of the subjects being covered, the opportunity to develop their interest and, of course, to enjoy themselves.


Subjects on offer are Design & Technology, Art, Food & Nutrition, Science, Wall Climbing & Gym Fitness, Football, High Ropes & Bushcraft and Performing Arts. The day will be split into a morning and afternoon session, pupils must choose a combination of any two of the sessions on offer (except Performing Arts, this is a full day workshop).
