Virtual Open Evening 2021

If you are the parent or carer of a child in Year 6, our 'live' Virtual Open Evening will take place on Thursday 30th September.

Our academy is a vibrant, dynamic and inspiring environment in which to study. 

We have been heavily oversubscribed for the last 6 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 2021.
