The staff and pupils at Rush Common School warmly welcome you to our first ever virtual open evening.

Although we are unable to invite you through our doors to share in all the wonderful things our school has to offer, we hope this virtual experience will ensure you have the information you need to help with the important decision of choosing the school that is right for you.

Similarly to our regular open events, here you will meet some the school staff and pupils, and explore the school site as we guide you through the different phases of the school. Importantly, you will get to meet our Reception teachers and the learning environment they have created.

We will be hosting a live Q&A session on Tuesday 20th October at 6.00pm. This will give you a further opportunity to meet our Headteacher, Deputy Headteacher, Pupil Support and Welfare Lead and our Reception Teachers. You will be able to ask any questions you may have about your child joining our school. Please email the school office to register your interest and we will provide details of how you can join the meeting.

From the 21st October onwards you will be able to make individual appointments with our Headteacher, Mr Kristen Fawcett. This will give you an opportunity to ask more individualised questions relating to your own child and find out further information about the school. We are open to enquiries from families across Abingdon.

Our staff and pupils are very proud to belong to Rush Common School, and we are really excited to share our school with you.

We look forward to welcoming you here soon.
