Starting School Information for September 2024

A big “Hello” to all of our new prospective parents and families from everyone here at Pirehill First School!


We are really pleased to announce that, this year, our SATURDAY OPEN MORNING will take place on SATURDAY 21st OCTOBER 2023 between 10am and 12pm. This provides you with a wonderful opportunity to look around Pirehill, chat to the staff and some of our pupils. Your child will also be able to take part in arrange of different activities in each classroom and when you are ready for a rest there will be refreshments available in the hall.


In addition to our Open Morning we would also like to offer you the opportunity to see Pirehill First School in action and so I have arranged 3 dates when Pirehill will be open for visitors during the working day.


The dates and times can be seen below and we will be limiting each visit to 10 families. Please contact the school office on 01785 334970 if you would like to book a visit.
