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, small group tours and informal coffee mornings. For further information, please contact [email protected] or phone 020 8365 4110.

Open evening, Thursday 19th September

Our open evening for students and parents will take place on Thursday 19th September 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.

Taster Lessons

We are offering Year 6 students the chance to come to the Archer Academy and try out some taster lessons for themselves on Wednesday 2nd 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 at 9.15am on Monday 23rd September, Wednesday 25th September, Wednesday 2nd October and Friday 4th October. Places will need to be booked in advance as numbers will be limited to give everyone the chance to ask questions. Please book tickets here: http://tinyurl.com/archerevents

Informal coffee mornings (Year 6 parents only)

In addition to these more formal events, we would also like to invite Year 6 parents (not students) to attend one of our coffee mornings. These drop-in sessions will take place between 9.15am and 10.15am on Tuesday 8th October and Thursday 10th October at our Upper School campus to enable parents to have a look at our GCSE site. Please book tickets for either coffee morning here: http://tinyurl.com/archerevents

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.
