Open Evening

Our Open Evening takes place on Thursday 29th September from 6pm until 7:30pm.  This very popular event is a fabulous opportunity to see the school in action. Every subject will be there showcasing their specialty.  There will be lots of experiences and activities for you and students to engage in.  You will meet our staff, have the opportunity to talk with current students, and find out all about life and learning at Archway School. Our Headteacher and the year 7 transition team will be delivering talks in the main hall at 6pm and 6.20pm

The Open Evening is perfect for parents/guardians of children starting secondary school in 2023 or 2024.  Staff will be on hand to answer all your questions and you can take a tour of the school's excellent facilities.  We look forward to welcoming you to Archway.

At Archway School we are committed to providing helpful information and opportunities for primary school students and their parents to prepare for transition to secondary school.

With so much choice in the Stroud area we understand how important it is for students and their parents to make informed choices when it comes to selecting the most appropriate secondary school.

To facilitate this we work closely with local primary schools to arrange a number of events for Y5 students & their parents each academic year:

Virtual meetings with Mr Smith and the Year 7 Transition Team take place in the Spring Term of Y5. Students can find out more about life as a secondary school student and in particular ask questions about opportunities on offer at our school.

In addition to these events you can find out more about Archway School by using the links on this page. Take a virtual tour around the school to view our facilities and see the opportunities on offer at Archway.  You will be able to continue developing skills and talents that you have discovered at primary school and you will also have the chance to try many new pursuits.

Please use the link below to listen to a recent Y5 parent Q&A session with the Headteacher and Mrs Durrant.
