Open Evening Information

Choosing the next step in your child’s education is a milestone event and we are very pleased to invite you to our Open Evening on Tuesday 19th September 2023.

During the evening there will be two talks from the Headteacher (5:30pm and 6pm) and the opportunity to meet other members of the Leadership Team, who will provide an insight into school life at The Weston Road Academy.  You can tour the school at your own convenience throughout the evening and meet our amazing staff and students.

Booking is essential for the event, as this is a ticketed event we ask that families each have a ticket to be able to attend. Our Open Evenings are popular events and we would ask that families support us by bringing only a limited number of family members to the event.
