Virtual Admissions 2020-2021
Welcome to Attleborough Academy. Normally, at this time of year, we would have our main hall full of prospective parents and their students attending our Open Evening. You would have heard a speech from our Executive Principal, Neil McShane and our Transition Coordinator, Hayley Cushing, as well as an opportunity to have a tour of the school and to speak to classroom teachers about the topics they study in different subjects.
With things the way they are, we cannot do this again this year – so we have brought Open Evening to you! On this page, you will find speeches from Mr McShane and Mrs Cushing, a tour of the school from Year 8 students, a speech from our Head Students and presentations from Heads of Faculty, briefly outlining what happens in their subjects in Year 7.
