Virtual Open Evening 2020
Our 'live' Virtual Open Evening took place on Thursday 24th September.
Our academy is a vibrant, dynamic and inspiring environment in which to study.
We have been heavily oversubscribed for the last 5 years and expect this to be the case again this year.
Please remember that the deadline for completion of your application form for a secondary school place is 5:00pm on 31st October 2020.
On Thursday 24th September our 'live' Virtual Open Evening began with a presentation delivered by our Principal, Mr Di Salvo, and other key members of the academy's leadership team.
This was streamed live to the homepage of our website.
This is essential viewing for prospective parents and students as it gives a clear picture of our vision for the academy.
