A BLACKBURN independent school will host an interactive 'Virtual Open Day' for prospective parents and pupils aged four to 18 on Saturday.

Westholme on Meins Road will offer a tour of its facilities through an interactive map.

They include its music department, all weather sport pitches, INSPIRED Sixth Form Centre, theatre and grounds.

Four live 'Question and Answer' sessions will take place between 10am and 12pm with members of the senior leadership team, current staff and students, and Westholme School’s principal, Dr Richard Robson.

Dr Robson said: “We would love to welcome prospective parents back into our fabulous school but due to current restrictions, families are invited to join an exciting interactive Westholme experience from the comfort of their own homes.

“Parents will be able to explore our first-class facilities online and learn more about our exciting plans for September 2022 and the launch of a new state-of-the-art Prep School at Wilmar Lodge on Meins Road.

"Westholme School is renowned for its warm, welcoming family atmosphere, fabulous facilities and equal focus on academia, sport and the creative and performing arts.”
