Secondary schools in Purbeck holding open evenings again

Open evenings for prospective parents and children to look round secondary schools in Purbeck, including The Swanage School, are happening again this autumn.

In 2020, with Covid restrictions still in force, most schools held virtual open evenings although some organised school tours for small groups.
