Virtual Open Evening

Welcome to The Highcrest Academy’s Virtual Open Evening!

It is such a shame that we are not able to welcome you through our doors and show you around our academy this year. However, sharing our information virtually is certainly the safest approach during these difficult times.

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website to find out more about us. We have put together a number of items to give you as much information about our academy as possible.

Below you can view a video presentation in which you can hear from our Principal, members of our Senior Leadership Team, our teaching and support staff and, most importantly, from some of our fantastic pupils.

You are also able to view a recording of last year’s Open Evening speeches. In this video you will hear from two of our Year Seven students about their early experiences with us, our Head Girl and Head Boy and the full speech and slideshow presentation from Mr Burke, our Principal.  

We would also like to share with you a virtual tour created for our Year Six Induction Day in July, on which our staff and students worked together. This video takes you through our corridors, into our classrooms and Sports Hall, through our new canteen and Sixth Form Centre and around our outside spaces.

In addition, below you can find our Prospectus that captures key aspects of our academy, along with a range of other informative documents.

We understand that choosing a secondary school for your child’s future education is a very important decision, so please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any further questions.

We very much hope that you enjoy your virtual visit and hopefully, when we are able to meet face-to-face, it will be because you have chosen to send your child to join our wonderful community, here at The Highcrest Academy.
