Mangotsfield Secondary

Year 6 Open Event

Welcome to Mangotsfield School’s Open Event

Open evenings are a wonderful way to experience a school environment but in lieu of that this year we have put together a series of videos for you to watch in your own time, in your own homes, which explain the core values which underpin our school.

We believe it is important that you can watch, pause and re-watch these videos as many times as you like which is why we are not doing a live event. We also believe that all parents and carers should have their questions answered by a member of the Senior Leadership Team. If you would like to join a Parent Virtual Meeting, which we are holding every day at 4.30 pm for groups of up to 10, please email man-info@cset.co.uk and write Open Event in the subject line. In your email please let us know which days you can attend.



 Our Art Team have created a virtual tour, aimed to support our current Year 7 cohort as they were unable to complete a traditional transition, enjoy!





Our four school values are Community, Love Learning, Respect and Challenge, this is known as The Mangotsfield Way. Please click on the videos below to see how they apply to our school.



As Mr Truan mentioned in his video, there are four houses in our school. Below is some information from the heads of Pomphrey, Siston, Rodway and Chase houses.

Finally, if you have questions about our school please email man-info@cset.co.uk

We look forward to meeting you in person as soon as we are allowed.

We are very much looking forward to welcoming you to Mangotsfield School. I am the Head of House for Chase. My job is to make sure that you are able to make the most of your time with us. To do this I will be asking you to consistently push your idea of what is possible. There will be many opportunities for you in secondary school both inside and outside the classroom. I will be making sure that the environment in school means you are confident enough to accept these challenges and push yourselves as far as you can. These challenges will vary for each of you and I am really looking forward to getting to know you all.”

I'm sure I will see many of you in lessons or at break and lunchtimes.  We will work together to help you succeed and enjoy your time as a Mangotsfield student.  We are all based in the Library (LRC) and I look forward to meeting you in there or around school.”
