We look forward to welcoming prospective students and their families at our Open Evening. Join the Principal, staff members and meet some of our current students for an introduction to life at our Academy. Take a guided tour, watch subject demonstrations and look at our many displays of student work as well as listen to presentations given by the Principal at 6.00pm (surnames starting A-L) and 7.00pm (surnames starting M-Z).

Open Mornings, Tuesday 6 October & Thursday 8 October, 9am-12noon

We are also offering other opportunities to visit our Academy during two Open Mornings. Guided tours will take place so that you can see learning in progress, or you may prefer to see our facilities at your own pace.

Our Communities

On entering the Academy, students become a member of one of three Communities. Belonging to a Community creates a cohesive and friendly environment that helps students feel a sense of belonging. The Vertical Tutoring structure encourages leadership and mentoring opportunities for students, and allows them to get to know and work with students from all years.
