The open event at University Academy Holbeach was a huge success, with nearly 200 families registering to apply for places.

Potential students were able to join in a variety of activities such as making volcanoes in geography, medieval medicine making in history,biscuit decorating in food technology andeven dissecting rats in science.

The visitors also had a chance to have a go at dance, as well as many sports such as table tennis, basketball and trampolining.

Parents and potential students were also entertained by the chamber choir.

Tours of the school were given by current students, which left many of the potential parents commenting on what a good job they did.

Headteacher Steve Baragwanath said: “It was a fantastic open event and it was really successful.

“We had lots of people turning up from further afield, which is great as we have more places available this year as opposed to previous years where we’ve had to turn people away.

“Many people seemed to be interested in our new iPad scheme, which means that every student has an iPad to access textbooks and the school’s VLE from. I’m very proud of the pupils who did a super job as ambassadors.

“Overall, it was a lovely evening with a great turnout which was really enjoyed by all of the kids who came along.”
