We are delighted to invite families within the area, with children of all ages, to attend the John Smeaton Academy Open Evening on Thursday 29 September 2022 from 6:00pm-8:00pm. We are incredibly proud of John Smeaton’s journey of transformation thus far and therefore, we are opening our doors to families who are seeking a secondary school place for September 2023 and to our wider community to come and see this transformation for yourselves and be a part of a truly magical evening.

The Open Evening will provide an opportunity for our visitors to:

  • Attend one of two speeches delivered by our Principal, Ms Gill at 6:15pm or 7:15pm
  • Meet our Student Ambassadors and hear directly from our students about what John Smeaton Academy means to them
  • Tour the academy and see the incredible facilities that we have on offer
  • Visit the wide range of curriculum areas we offer and experience how our staff bring the curriculum to life for the engagement and enjoyment of our students
  • Visit the canteen facilities and taste test the variety of foods on offer for our students during breaktimes and lunchtimes
  • Learn more about how we develop students beyond the curriculum, including our highly popular: Enrichment++ programme, House system and the 100% Attendance Club
