Haven High Academy Year 5 & 6 Virtual Open Evening video from September 2020Due to the restrictions put in place by Covid-19, we are unable to conduct an open evening in the format we may all be used to however as an organisation we feel it is important to showcase what we have on offer at Haven High Academy. Our staff and students are eager to show you what makes Haven High a “World-Class” Academy and to do this we have decided to embrace technology and show you from the safety of your homes via a virtual open evening. The concept of an open evening online may be daunting for some but please don’t worry we will guide you through the process and provide you with a platform to allow for knowledge to be obtained about our Academy and to ask the questions you want to allow yourself and your child to make an informed choice about which secondary school they will be choosing.

Our team is always on hand to assist with any questions you may have about the school. Please get in touch via email: OpenEvening@gilesacademy.co.uk
