Open Evening – Newbridge: Wednesday 25 September 2019

The Apollo Partnership Trust is excited to invite you and your child to our Annual Open Evenings for prospective Year 7 students joining us in 2020.  The events are designed for families with a child who will be eligible to apply for entry into Year 7 in the Academic Year 2020-21.  It is a wonderful opportunity for you to meet our staff and students and will give you a fantastic insight into our secondary schools.

Both evenings will commence with a short presentation from the Trust’s CEO, Mrs J. Patrick, about our vision for the education in Coalville. This will include an update on the fantastic news that the Department for Education has approved our application for Age Range Change within the three secondary schools in Coalville. With that in mind, we will be welcoming students who will stay with their school through both Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 as Newbridge becomes an 11-16 school and Castle Rock / King Edward become an 11-16 with a shared Sixth Form based on the King Edward site.

During the Open Evening you will be able to meet the staff, ask questions and see our excellent facilities.

May we also take this opportunity to draw your attention to the arrangements this year regarding school transfer.  EVERY parent must make a request for a school place for their child. You submit your form online at, by 31st October 2019, expressing your preference, even if you live inside the catchment.

To complement your Open Evening experience, please book an appointment to secure a Newbridge Guided Tour.  You and your child will be shown around our impressive facilities by Student Ambassadors.  You will have the opportunity to experience the Newbridge environment on a regular school day.  We are now taking booking here.

We look forward to meeting you later in the month.
