Virtual Open Evening:
From 24 Sept 2020

Year 6 Virtual Opening Evening

Due to Covid-19 government guidelines, we have been unable to invite parents and Year 6 children into school for our annual Open Evening this year. Therefore, in order to help you make a decision about whether The Bulwell Academy is the right secondary school for your child, we have put together a range of resources to provide you with the information you need. This includes a filmed presentation by the Principal, videos of our facilities, subject information and a simple form for you to ask any questions you may have.

Any Questions

Once you have looked through the information below, if you have any questions, please contact us using red button below. Your question will be redirected to the relevant member of staff to reply to you by email.

Answers to Frequently Asked Questions will be published at a later date.
