invitation to Concord’s Online Open Day – 2nd February 2021

Thursday January 14, 2021

We would like to invite you to Concord’s Online Open Day on 2nd February 2021 from 10.30 am UK time. To join us, please click here to register. There will be a chance to attend a live Welcome Talk by Principal Mr Neil Hawkins and the new Principal, Dr Michael Truss, who will be taking over from Mr Hawkins in September 2021. In the past we have always enjoyed welcoming prospective students and their families to our beautiful campus in Shropshire, with every day being an ‘Open Day’, however we find ourselves in very different times. But, after the success of our first Online Open Day in October, which was attended by over 400 families, we have decided to hold another similar event this term – and hope this will be a useful alternative until you can visit again in person. In addition to the Welcome Talk, Mr Hawkins and Dr Truss will be joined by Head of Lower School, Mrs Rachel Coward, for a live Q&A session. The second live talk will be on the Admissions process, again, with a live Q&A session with the Head of Marketing, Mrs Vanessa Hawkins and the Admissions Secretary, Miss Karen Pike. The third talk will be a presentation about Concord’s wonderful Summer Courses followed by a live Q&A with Director of Summer School, Mrs Kari Quant and Sharon Connor, Summer Course Senior Administrator. There will also be a chance to watch an exclusive video tour of the campus filmed recently, only available to those who sign up to the Open Day. Speaking ahead of the event, Mr Hawkins said: “I really hope you are able to join us on the 2nd February to learn a little more about Concord and what I believe makes it so uniquely special. “I am delighted to say that Concord’s new Principal, Dr Michael Truss will be joining us for the welcome presentation – and that he will be taking on his new role as Principal in September 2021. “He is greatly looking forward to joining the Concord community.” He added: “Dr Truss is a highly intelligent, experienced and skilled educator who has great warmth and humanity.” To join us for the official Open Day, please click here to register. The Online Open Day live talks will be recorded and be available to view after the event if you are unable to attend in real time. We really hope that you will be able to join us and learn more about England’s premier international school, and we will look forward to seeing you soon.
