We look forward to welcoming you to our outstanding Academy and hope you find our Open Evening both informative and valuable.
A typical visit will take between an hour and an hour and a half. During the course of the Open Evening you will have the opportunity to:
There will be three opportunities during the evening to attend a presentation by the Principal of the academy and the work that we do.
You will need to have a ticket (one per person) to gain entry to the Principal’s talks in the main auditorium. For safety reasons, there is a limit on the number of people that can be seated at any one time. You will be offered tickets to the next available presentation as you enter the school, with timings clearly indicated. Please understand that if all the tickets for the talks have been allocated, you will not be able to hear the Principal’s talk.
We would advise using public transport, walking or cycling if at all possible, as we anticipate our Open Evening will be very busy. We have ample cycle storage on site. However, if travelling by car:
There will be a limited amount of car parking available on the school site. There is only one entrance to the site via the gates on Millfield Lane. Members of our facilities team will manage and direct car parking on site, until the car park is full. Please follow all directions you are given and ensure that cars are not parked in front of emergency access gates.
For parking off site, please consider our neighbours and the normal restrictions that apply on Millfield Lane (there is no car access to Millfield Lane via Low Poppleton Lane).
We would strongly recommend you consider parking slightly further away from the site towards either end of Millfield Lane and walking the short last part of your journey.
Car sharing, if at all possible, is highly recommended.
