Opportunities to 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.

All opportunities listed below will only go ahead if government guidance allows.

Open Evening, Wednesday 6th October 2021

Our open evening for students and parents will take place on Wednesday 6th October between 6pm and 9pm. 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 meeting our teachers and governors.

Headteacher Lucy Harrison will give talks at the Open Evening at: 6.15pm, 7.00pm, 7.45pm & 8.30pm. We are expecting high levels of interest in this event and we are asking visitors to pre-book tickets to hear one of these talks. You can do so via our events booking page: http://tinyurl.com/archerevents

Please note, if we have a large number of attendees we will have two queues on the night; one for families who have booked tickets for a talk and the other for non-ticket holders. If you haven’t booked a ticket, you will still be welcome to come to the open evening, but you may have a longer wait to get in. You will need to allow around 40 minutes either before or after your Headteacher talk if you would also like a tour of the school.

Taster Lessons

We hope to offer year 6 students the chance to come to the Archer Academy and try out some taster lessons for themselves on Wednesday 13th October from 4.30 – 6pm at our lower school campus. Please book tickets here: http://tinyurl.com/archerevents

Small Group Tours (Year 6 only)

We are also holding a series of small group tours for year 6 students and their parents at lower school. These will take place from 9.15am – 10.15am each day from Monday 11th October – Friday 15th 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.

If you would like to find out more about our school, please browse our prospectus and watch a recording of our September 2020 open evening.

We have also created some short films, which cover topics including snack-sized subjects, a chat with some Year 7s and a visit from some of our Archer alumni. You can watch them all here.
