Student Admissions (September 2023 Entry)

Welcome to Attleborough Academy!

The Main School Open Evening event for September 2023 Year 7 entry will take place on Wednesday 5 October 2022 from 18.00 to 21.00. 

Due to the popularity of this event over the past few years and in the interest of minimising areas of congestion, we will be running two introductory talks from the Executive Principal in the Main Hall at 18.00 and 19.30. Following each welcome session, students and their parents or carers will be given the opportunity to tour the Academy within supervised groups. This will allow you to visit our classrooms, explore our wide range of resources and see some of the excellent work carried out by the students and staff of the Academy.

It also provides an opportunity to meet our teachers and Prefects who will answer any of your questions about your child attending Attleborough Academy. We hope that the evening will help you make an informed choice about your child’s future education.  

We will be using a booking system to ensure numbers are spread over the two welcome sessions. Please use the following link to book your visit:

Please note that we have limited on-site parking for this event so, where possible, we would ask you to park in Queen’s Square and walk through the bottom gate and up to the Main Hall Reception to sign in for the welcome talk. Perfects will be available to guide you. 

We very much look forward to welcoming you to Attleborough Academy but in the meantime, please do read our Prospectus and Parent Handbook to find out more about Attleborough Academy.

This is an exciting time to join our Academy. Many of you will know that Attleborough is a growing and thriving community and we would like you to be familiar with life at Attleborough Academy in anticipation of your child joining us in 2023.
