Open Events

We understand that choosing the right secondary school for your child is a crucial decision. To assist you in this process, we are hosting a series of open events to showcase everything King Alfred's Academy has to offer. Our goal is to provide you with a comprehensive understanding of our school and address any questions you may have, whether they pertain to King Alfred's specifically or secondary education in general.

We are here to support you in making this important choice. While we take pride in showcasing the strengths of our academy, we recognise the significance of your decision, and our primary aim is to assist you in selecting the school that best suits your son or daughter.

Of course, we would be thrilled if you chose King Alfred's Academy as your first preference for secondary education and decided to become part of our rapidly growing community starting in September 2024.
