2020 Open Events & Webinars

Discover student life at the Academy

Attendance forms must be completed to attend an event

As per the latest Government guidance on COVID-19 we are now operating virtual events and are unable to accept attendees who have not pre-registered.

COVID-19 Event notice

We all continue to live in uncertain times.  Our aim is to welcome you and your child to The Ebbsfleet Academy Open Events.  We will continue to review and monitor the viability of the events and follow all government guidelines. Currently, we are only running virtual events as per the latest Government guidelines at this time.

Thank you for your support and understanding.

We look forward to warmly welcoming you virtually to the Academy.

Open Events

Choosing the right secondary school for your son or daughter is a big decision.  It’s a decision we all want to get right, to ensure your child, our student, is happy and content at school, so they can achieve and be the best they can be. We believe the best way for families to discover more about student life at The Ebbsfleet Academy is to invite parents, carers and children to sample our educational offering.

We want to encourage families to take part in one of our Virtual Events, so you can get a feel for our academy and meet with our students, teachers and support staff too.  We also have several subject webinars so you can experience some of our teaching in various subjects.

It’s important for everyone to explore and discover what The Ebbsfleet Academy has to offer in order to make an informed decision for your child’s next step.

Once registered for a place, a few days before each event, you will be invited via email to attend an online academy presentation, where you will hear from Ms Gurjit Kaur Shergill, Principal of the Ebbsfleet Academy. 

Open Event dates

Our weekday events start at 6PM and finish at 7PM. These are:

  • Wednesday 23 September 
  • Tuesday 29 September

Alternatively there is also a weekend event which starts at 10AM and finishes at 11AM. These are:

  • Saturday 26 September

Please complete an online booking form to register your interest in an Open Event.

It is only necessary to attend one event as the content of all three will be the same.

Subject Webinars

We are running four online ‘Subject Webinars’, providing exciting learning opportunities for  families to gain an insight into the learning environment at the academy and  to meet some of our teachers.

The webinars will enable you to explore the subject and find out what topics students will cover in their first year at the academy.  It is a valuable experience to join a live class and become a student of The Ebbsfleet Academy.

All 'Subject Webinars'  last approximately 30 - 45 minutes in length. Participants will view a ‘live’ presentation and have the opportunity to submit questions and contribute to discussion.

How to join the Subject Webinars...

To book a place, please register your details via the booking link and we will be in touch shortly with information on how to attend the webinar.

The Subject Webinars will be hosted on WebEx, which is easy to use and compatible with most devices.  

We hope you can join us.
