With pride, we welcomed potential students to our Academy

It was fantastic to see so many parents and potential students at our open evening on Tuesday 20 September 2016. Parents and children were warmly welcomed by Freebrough staff and students as they arrived and shown to their seat in the large atrium. Parents and students heard from both Mrs Prentice and Mrs Halbert as well as our Head Boy (Matthew) and Head Girl (Leona).

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. Each subject area also had lessons taking place for which parents could sign up and take part. The activities were wide and varied, for example 3D printing and trampolining. Parents and students also thoroughly enjoyed sampling Academy food which was prepared by our chef and his team.

Parents and students showed real enthusiasm throughout the evening which continued well past the 8.00 pm finish time. The feedback from parents was so positive and provided a fantastic end to a fantastic evening.

Our lucky prize winner, Farrah from Lockwood Primary School was presented with her prize during one of her lessons, as Farrah correctly identified the winning phrase from the treasure hunt.
