South Axholme Academy - Year 6 Open Evening, Thursday 21 September 2023 

As parents/carers of children in Year 6, you will be thinking about which secondary school you would like them to go to in September 2024.  At South Axholme Academy, we are holding our  

Year 6 Open Evening on Thursday 21 September 2023.  During this evening you will have the opportunity to look around our academy and meet our amazing students and staff.  The Academy serves students not only from the Isle of Axholme but Doncaster and North Nottinghamshire.  


South Axholme Academy is the number one school in the area, according to the 'Good Schools Guide,' and we have been oversubscribed for the last five years with over 195 applicants for  

Year 7 places.  We have an excellent reputation locally and further afield for the achievements of our students whether academic, vocational, sporting or cultural. Students also benefit from an outstanding programme of extra-curricular activities that cater for all interests and abilities. 


We are holding three events on Thursday 21 September, and we are asking parents to arrive at the time which is linked to their area/primary school to avoid overcrowding - see below. Parents of children in Year 5 are also welcome to the event should they wish to attend.  


After the presentations on Thursday 21 September, you and your child will have an opportunity to tour our academy, look at the facilities we have to offer, observe students engaging in a variety of learning activities and in some cases join in!  In addition, members of staff will be on hand to talk to as well as myself and members of the Senior Leadership Team.
