Y6 Open Evening
Thursday 3 October 2019 (6.00 – 8.00pm)
We know how important it is when parents are choosing a secondary school for their sons and daughters. Here at Westbourne Academy we believe that we provide an effective level of support and challenge for all students to thrive. We are a rapidly improving Ofsted graded Good school, which is celebrating better GCSE results and significant progress year on year.
You are invited to attend our annual Open Evening on Thursday 3 October 2019. The main purpose of the evening is to give you an opportunity to visit the academy, meet with staff and students and experience many aspects of the life and work of Westbourne. If you have not visited before, please do come along and see for yourself what an exciting and positive place it is.
During the evening, you will be able to visit displays and exhibitions as well as see students working with teachers in classrooms and other areas. Student guides and House prefects will be available to show you around and to give you their perspective of life at the academy. At 7.00pm and again at 7.40pm, there will be a presentation in the main hall about why Westbourne Academy is the right choice for your child.
Once again, we are also offering parents of students in Year 6 an opportunity to have a tour of the academy during the school day. These will take place daily, week commencing Monday 30 September and will start at 8.30am or 9.30am, lasting just under one hour. To book a place, please contact Miss Alcock on 01473 466136. Due to the fact that pupils would normally be in school at this time, the school day tours are for parents/carers only.
Applications for transfer to high school in the normal year of admission are dealt with through Suffolk County Council’s Admissions Team. Further details and guidance on applying for a high school place can be found on our academy website under the About/Admissions page. Pupils who are subsequently offered a place at Westbourne Academy by the local authority will be invited to take part in two taster days which are planned for Wednesday 1st and Thursday 2nd July 2020.
