Y6 Primary Visits
Throughout September, we visit the Year 6 girls who attend primary schools within the Didcot Area Partnership. A senior member of staff, and current DGS students, deliver a presentation to the pupils and their parents, giving them information about our school and an idea of what life at Didcot Girls’ School is like.
For any families with daughters attending primary schools outside of the Didcot Area Partnership we will be holding a presentation evening on Monday 24th September at 6:30pm in Cockcroft Hall. You will be given a presentation from senior members of staff and information about transport will also be available. As well as this, you will hear from some of the girls who joined us last year from schools outside of our catchment area. If you would like to join us for this evening please email email@example.com or let us know when you book your place on a school tour.
