Tours of the Academy for September admissions - parents wishing to come and see the Academy action are welcome to join a tour from October to December, led by a senior leader, who will also answer your questions. Tours take around an hour and it is helpful if there are no children present, as they can disrupt the learning of children in the classrooms. Please telephone the office from September 2017 (020 8689 7688) to book a tour, and please mention if you have any access requirements, as some areas have steps.
