Student Admissions (September 2023 Entry)

Welcome to Attleborough Academy!

The Main School Open Evening event for September 2023 Year 7 entry took place on Wednesday 5 October 2022.

We hope that the many parents, carers and students who joined us found their visit interesting and informative and that the evening's events will help them make an informed choice about their child’s future education.

We very much look forward to welcoming you to Attleborough Academy in the future 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.

Finally, please find below a selection of videos from our Virtual Open Evening from October 2020 which you may find of interest if you were unable to attend this year's Open Evening event.
