Dear Parent/Carer,

I am delighted to invite you to our annual Open Evening on Thursday 26th September 2019. This event is a fantastic opportunity to view our school, meet our staff and see our students at work.

The transition between Primary and Secondary school is a very important phase in your child’s life. Here at NET Kirk Balk Academy we place great emphasis on ensuring this is a positive and enjoyable experience for each individual. Over several years, we have established a very effective liaison programme with our Primary School partners and our Open Evening is a vital part of that process.

This year we achieved our best-ever results, with a staggering 75% of students achieving a pass in both English and Maths, a figure which is significantly above the national average. We are incredibly proud to be the highest achieving school in Barnsley in terms of attainment. Due to such outstanding results, there is an increasing demand for places meaning there has never been a better time to visit NET Kirk Balk Academy to consider a place for your child.

During the evening, you will be able to explore the school and observe students working with their teachers during model lessons. There will also be the opportunity to attend a presentation by the Principal that takes place throughout the evening at 5pm, 6pm and 7pm respectively. Our superb staff and students will be available throughout your visit to speak to and answer any questions you may have.

The Open Evening is open to all parents/carers of students in Year 5 and Year 6. I hope that you and your child will be able to attend what promises to be an exciting and informative event. If you are unable to attend on the day, please do not hesitate to contact the school to arrange a visit at a time that is convenient for you.

I look forward to seeing you at the Open Evening.

Yours faithfully

Mr J Gates
Acting Assistant Principal
