Engage is our programme for bringing students and their parents or carers together, to engage in fun and interactive activities.  It is programme for all students from years 7-11.

The evenings are either subject specific – giving parents and carers the opportunity to experience how a subject may be taught – or will focus of other elements of academy learning that may be important for our students.


Students and their parents and carers are invited to several Engage evenings throughout the academic year, where they all work together for 90 minutes across two subject areas.  Subjects covered include:  English, Mathematics, Science, Drama, Design Technology, Modern Foreign Languages, History, Geography, PE and Art.  In addition, there are also several evenings that are non-subject specific, including the “Exam Showcase” – where attendees look at various revision and exam strategies and the “Be Smart” Engage Evening – with a PSHCEE (Personal, Social, Health, Citizenship and Economic Education) focus.

Engage evenings are a big part of our commitment to working with parents and carers, and welcoming them into the academy.

We look forward to welcoming you at one of our Engage Evenings soon.
