Open Evening

Our annual Open Evening is a chance for prospective pupils and their families to see our Academy in action. With exciting displays, in-class demonstrations and activities it is a great opportunity to meet our pupils and speak to members of our staff in detail about their subjects and just what we have to offer.

Our Open Evenings take place in September each year. We hope you will be able to visit the Academy with your child.

The 2018 Open Evening will take place on Thursday 13th September 4:30pm – 7:30pm.

If you can’t attend, but would like to visit us on another day, please contact the Academy to arrange a mutually convenient date and time.
