WELCOME TO CORNWALLIS’ OUTREACH PROGRAMME

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

This year, as we have been unable to open our doors to year 5 and 6 students, we have created a virtual menu of exciting taster lessons; in a range of subjects. There is also a video which 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. When it is safe to do so we look forward to welcoming you into the school. We will launch all dates and information as soon as we can. You will be able to book a tour of the school, join our open mornings or take part in our weekend taster days.
