If your son or daughter is about to start Year 6 or Year 8 you are probably already thinking about their next step into High School in readiness for September 2022. These days there are more choices available to students and parents than ever before and sometimes it’s hard to know where to start. Attending open evenings and taking tours of schools is probably the best way to really understand if a school is right for you. It’s a lot like choosing a house, when you view the right one, you just know.
We are looking forward to The Rural Enterprise Academy being that school of choice for two more classes of students in both Year 7 and Year 9 for September 2022.
Last year, due to Covid, we were unable to host a normal open evening and we’re delighted to be able to offer that all important, in-person experience this year. The event takes place at 6pm on Thursday 7 October and everyone is welcome. If you’ve not visited before you can find The Rural Enterprise Academy on the campus of Rodbaston College immediately off the A449 south of Penkridge – our postcode is ST19 5PH. Put the date in your diary and we will see you then. Can’t make it? Let us know and we can arrange a tour during the school day.
