Taster days

Taster day children using bunsen burner

Our taster days let year five children enjoy a day at senior school to help make the change a less daunting experience.

Forthcoming taster days

Dates of our summer 2015 taster days are to be confirmed.

Email Hannah Atenyam at atenyamh@stockportgrammar.co.uk to be among the first to hear them.

What happens on a taster day

Taster days feature a series of fun and educational activities such as science, drama, maths, PE and art.

The days run from 9.10am to 3pm and we provide free refreshments and lunch.

Children should wear casual clothes with trainers so that they are comfortable and able to take part in a PE session.
