Outreach 2024



 Welcome to our outreach programme. At Cornwallis Academy we are extremely proud of our outstanding teachers and our broad and exciting curriculum.

Below, there is an information pack for our Year 5 Taster Sessions starting in February 2024. There is also a video that gives you a sneak peek into our classrooms and virtual 3D tour of the school.

Hopefully, this will give you some insight into our wonderful community.

2024 Year 5 Taster Sessions

The taster sessions are aimed at children in Year 5 and are led run by our experienced subject-specific staff. They are devised to encourage challenging and new learning opportunities whilst having fun in small groups, to help students get used to a secondary school setting. No prior knowledge is required, just an enthusiasm and interest in learning. These workshops would be ideal for children who would be looking to join the school in 2025.

This year, we will be delivering over 15 Year 5 Taster Sessions Workshops, which parents can book directly via our online booking system.
