The High Weald Academy

A Brook Learning Trust Academy

2020 Open Events

Discover student life at the academy     

Covid-19 Event notice 

We all remain to live in uncertain times.  Our aim is to welcome you and child to The High Weald Academy Open Events.  We will continue to review and monitor the viability of the events and follow all government guidelines.

If we are unable to invite you into the academy to explore, we will open our doors virtually.  The virtual events will take place on the original schedule dates and start at the advertised times. Should the decision be taken to run virtual events, we will email full details on how to join the online events.

Thank you for your support and understanding.

We look forward to warmly welcoming you to the academy.


Choosing the right secondary school for your son or daughter is a big decision.  It’s a decision we all want to get right, to ensure your child, our student, is happy and content at school, so they can achieve and be the best they can be. We believe the best way for families to discover more about student life at The High Weald Academy is to invite parents, carers and children to sample our educational offering .

We want to encourage parents and carers to come along to one of our Open Events, so you can get a feel for our academy, meet with our students, teachers and support staff too.  Plus explore our new 21st century building, which has generated a new era of education opportunities for our future learners.

It’s important for families to explore and discover what The High Weald Academy has to offer in order to make an informed decision for your child’s next step.
