Welcome to Fort Pitt Grammar School’s 2020 Virtual Open Evening!

For me, seeing the school in action is one of our best-selling points in terms of giving you confidence as a parent that the environment we have created for your child is safe and inspiring. At this point all the guidance suggests this is not the right thing to do and our current focus, as you would expect, is to keep all the students and staff at Fort Pitt safe and not to do things which could compromise this and possibly result in significant numbers having to isolate and not attend school. However, we fully appreciate how important selecting the right school is for your child, and whilst our Virtual Open Evening isn’t quite the same as visiting us, we wanted to be able to give you a flavour of what life is like at Fort Pitt, which we hope will help you decide if we are the right school!

Below you have the opportunity to meet our fantastic teachers, listen to other members of our community including students, parents and governors, and after watching the subject videos, your children can also take part in our ‘Open Evening Challenge’ and win a prize sent directly to their primary school!


Thank you for taking the time to visit us.


We also have a  dedicated email address to answer any of your open evening/admissions queries for entry in September 2021  you can also use this address to request a call back should you wish to speak to a member of staff in more detail.

Secondary school applications close: 5pm on Monday 30 November 2020
