Potential students visit our academy during our open evening

It was fantastic to see so many parents and potential students at our open evening on Tuesday 22 September 2015. Parents and children were warmly welcomed by Freebrough staff and students and shown into our large atrium, where they had the opportunity to hear from our Principal Mrs Linda Halbert, as well as a number of student speakers including our Head Boy Billy Scott and our Head Girl Lucy Hoggarth.

Parents and students had the opportunity to take part in our treasure hunt which allowed them full access to the Academy, giving them the chance to visit all subject areas. A number of exciting activities were on offer, including our Georges Marvellous Medicine Extravaganza in English and hearing “screaming jelly babies” in science. Those parents brave enough also had the opportunity to sample taster lessons, giving them a flavour of what it is like to be a student here at the Academy.

Parents, students and staff alike showed real enthusiasm and a willingness to try new things throughout the whole evening which continued on past our 8pm finish. The feedback from parents and their children was so positive and complimentary was a lovely end to such a fun filled and busy open evening.
