Virtual Open Day

Welcome to the Sion Virtual Open Day

Whilst we know that the best way for you to truly get to know Our Lady of Sion is to visit us, we hope that this virtual experience will give you a flavour of what to expect.

I would be delighted to speak to any parent either by phone or video-call. We may also be able to arrange a visit at a mutually convenient time.

Please contact our Admissions Registrar, Miss Victoria Greco (01903 228638 or admissions@sionschool.org.uk) to arrange a call or visit and she will be able to answer any other questions you may have.

Our next Open Days will be in September.

I look forward to meeting you, either via a call or in person, very soon.

Are you a Faith School?

We are a Catholic Foundation School which means that our school grew out of the vision of the Ratisbonne brothers in 1862. Although our Founders came from a Catholic faith, their focus for Sion students was to ensure that all children of all faiths (and none) would proactively learn to live in harmony with one another through understanding and dialogue.

What Remote Learning Provision do you offer?

Since the beginning of the early lockdown period, we were able to offer all our students remote learning which has been via a variety of different platforms.

In the Junior School, we use SeeSaw and Tapestry, and in the Senior School we use Microsoft Teams as a pastoral platform and Google Classroom for teaching. All platforms enabled us to maximise the learning in this period with a mix of collaborative work and online resources.

These resources are in place should the occasion arise and we are easily able to adopt our online teaching whenever the situation occurs. The experience has enabled teaching staff to develop online learning as a useful pedagogic tool.
