Virtual Admissions 2020-2021
Welcome to Attleborough Academy. Normally at this time of year we would have a main hall packed full of prospective parents and their students at our Open Evening. You would have had 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 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’ve 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.
