Do you have a child looking to join us?

Our next Open Evening is 19th September 2019 - 5:30pm to 8:00pm!

Padgate Academy has to be experienced to really understand what sets us apart from other schools.


Our Open Day will let you see the Academy in action as the corridors and classrooms come alive with activities and energy.  You will have the opportunity to meet our staff and students to find out what life at the Academy is like.  Your children can have a go at science experiments, get creative with English or linguistic with languages... Every subject has something to experience.


Students will be on hand to provide tours of the school's facilities and grounds.  Everyone is invited to listen to an address by the Principal, Mrs Misia Barclay who will talk about the exciting changes taking place.  Refreshments will also be available throughout the evening.
