We are proud to announce our first Open Events for September 2025 Admissions!

The Open Evening will take place on Wednesday 25th September 2024.  The Academy will be open from 4pm for families to self-tour the school site,  you will have the opportunity to speak with students and staff, asking questions about our curriculum, pastoral care and opportunities. There will be many activities in the subject areas for your child to participate in to experience our facilities and curriculum.

Mrs Millward, the Principal, will be hosting talks for families in the main hall, they will take place at the following times and will last approximately 30 minutes:

  • 4.30pm – please book here
  • 5.30pm – please book here
  • 6.30pm – please book here

In the interest of ensuring that as many families can attend each session as possible we would ask that, where possible, viewings include parents/carers and the prospective year 6 pupil only. You will  need to book one ticket person, with a maximum of up to four people per family.  Due to the maximum capacity in our main hall, booking is essential for these talks. When attending your allocated session please ensure you have the email confirming your booking with you.  

If you wish to simply tour the Academy and not attend a talk with Mrs Millward, you do not need to book. 

Limited parking is available on site, so please walk where possible.  If you need to reserve a disabled bay to attend the event, please contact the office on

Open Day Tours

In addition to our Open Evening, we will be hosting Day Tours for parents with their year 6 child who can have a tour of the academy with a member of our senior leadership team.  These tours will be taking place from  Monday 30th September 2024 until Friday 11th October 2024 and you can book these events on our website from Monday 9th September onwards.

We hope that you will find our open events informative and engaging, and that these will support your decision that the Leigh Academy Rainham is your school of choice for your child.
