2022 Open Evening – Thursday 22nd September

We are very pleased to invite you to Wreake Valley Academy’s Open Evening for pupils joining Year 7 in August 2023. We recognise that this is an incredibly important time for families, and we want to support you with the decision you need to make. As you will be aware the deadline for applying for a secondary school place is 31st October 2022.

Families wishing to attend the Open Evening will need to prebook their places.  We are offering a choice of three time slots during the evening. We ask that families only book one time slot. Whilst we aren’t limiting the number of people that can attend per family, we may have to ask only one adult to go into the presentation with the Headteacher due to the limited number of seats in the theatre.

The time slots available are:

  • 5pm arrival with a presentation beginning promptly at 5.15pm.
  • 45pm arrival with a presentation beginning promptly at 6pm.
  • 30pm arrival with a presentation beginning promptly at 6.45pm

The format of the evening will be as follows:

  • On arrival at Wreake Valley, visitors will be welcomed into the theatre for a presentation by the Headteacher Mr Marston, introduced to key members of staff and given an outline of the transition programme for children joining us in August 2023.
  • After the presentation there will be an opportunity to tour the school to see subject areas, meet subject specialists, visit the Special Educational Needs department and the pastoral support hub and speak to our team of specialist teachers and support staff; who will be able to answers any questions that you may have.
