Open Evening 2015
More than 300 families were dazzled by a variety of displays at Cornwallis Academy's annual open evening.
Primary school pupils came along to our Hubbards Lane campus on Tuesday, September 22nd, to take a look round our state-of-the-art facilities and to explore the range of exciting subjects we have to offer.
The evening did not disapoint with teachers pulling out all the stops to impress potential students and their families, with eye-catching science experiments, mock crime scenes, interactive tasks, drama performances and much more.
Staff were giving a helping hand on the night by our existing students, who acted as department assistants and tour guides.
Principal David Simons said: "It was great to see so many families come through the door to take a tour of our fantastic academy. The staff staged a number of engaging displays, including a mock CSI-style crime scene in the Science labs, which attracted a queue of people hoping to solve the clues.
"Thank you to the families who attended. We hope to see you all again soon."
Mr Simons added: "I'd also like to thank the Cornwallis students who helped to make the evening such a great success. Our tour guides and classroom helpers were professional, informative and acted as great ambassadors for the academy."
Open morning tours are taking place on September 24th, 25th, 28th and 29th. To book a place, please contact reception on 01622 743152.
