We welcome you to attend our Open Evening on Thursday 22nd September 2022, from 6.00pm. This event is open to all students starting secondary school in September 2023 who have an interest in Clyst Vale as a prospective school.  

We invite you to learn more about the ethos of our school and to visit the site and different subject departments within. We are proud to be a UNICEF Rights Respecting School. You will have a chance to learn more about this during our open evening.
