Visit us

We know that getting a feel for a school is an important part of the application process. We offer a range of opportunities for parents and students to visit us in the run up to the October admissions deadline. These include an Open Evening, taster lessons for Year 6 students and small group tours for Year 6 families. For further information, please contact [email protected] or phone 020 8365 4110.


Open Evening, Thursday 19th September 2024

Our Open Evening for children and parents will take place on Thursday 19th September between 5.30pm and 8.30pm at our lower school campus. Students will be available to take you on a tour of the school, giving you the chance to explore the classrooms and take part in some activities, as well as meet our teachers and governors.

Headteacher Lucy Harrison will give talks at the Open Evening at: 5.45pm, 6.30pm, 7.15pm and 8pm. Please allow around 40 minutes either before or after the Headteacher talk if you would also like a tour of the school. Please pre-book one of the Headteacher talks here

Please note, we will have two queues on the night; one for families who have booked tickets for a Headteacher talk and the other for non-ticket holders. If you haven’t booked a ticket for a Headteacher talk, you will still be welcome to come to the Open Evening, but you may have a longer wait to get in.


Taster Lessons (Year 6 only), Tuesday 1st October 2024

We are offering Year 6 students the chance to come to the Archer Academy and try out some taster lessons for themselves on Tuesday 1st October from 4.30 – 6pm at our lower school campus. Please book tickets here:


Small group tours (Year 6 only), various dates

We are also holding a series of small group tours for Year 6 students and their parents at both our lower school and upper school campus. These will take place from 9.15am – 10.15am at our lower school campus on Monday 23rd September, Tuesday 24th September and Wednesday 25th September; and at our upper school campus on Thursday 26th September, Monday 30th September and Tuesday 1st October. Places will need to be booked in advance by phone as numbers will be limited to give everyone the chance to ask questions. Please call our Admissions Officer, Sharon Walsh to book: 020 8365 4110.


Consideration for our neighbours

Our relationships with members of our local community are very important to us. We would therefore ask anyone attending any events at the Archer Academy to consider our neighbours, and either come by public transport or park some distance away from the school and walk. Please note that there is no parking available on either site. Thank you for your support; we look forward to seeing you at one or more of our events.
