Our innovative new Open Day

We are excited to launch our inaugural online Open Day – a new and highly interactive event to introduce prospective families to our school.
ACG Sunderland has launched online Open Days to introduce you to our school

We’re introducing an innovative new approach to Open Days while Auckland remains under Alert Level 3.

We believe that our Open Days are an excellent way for prospective families to gain a real sense of ACG Sunderland’s values, educational programmes and community environment. And although we are not able to invite you to join us on campus (until we return to Level 1), we have created an innovative and highly interactive online Open Day to introduce you to our school.

We're incredibly excited to launch this virtual event, which will be packed full of information and live conversations with our principal, senior staff and student leaders. Drawing on best international practices from our fellow schools in the Inspired Education Group, our first online Open Day will be held via Zoom on Saturday, 30th October. 

Beginning at 10:30am, this digital approach provides a unique opportunity to share our educational philosophy and school values with new families. 

We will be dividing the Open Day into four sub-sections:

  • The first will focus on our Early Learning School.
  • The second will be devoted to our Primary School.
  • The third will centre on our College – from Years 7 to 13.
  • And our final section will be on our enrolments process.

The webinar presentation will last for approximately one hour. Plus, we will also include a comprehensive ‘Question and Answer’ session should you have any queries, or require further information, to ensure that ACG Sunderland is the right fit for your child.

We are delighted to showcase our campus across this interactive Open Day format and look forward to connecting with new families and students.   

What you can expect from the day:

  • You will meet our principal, Mr Nathan Villars.
  • You’ll have the opportunity to speak with some of our teachers and senior staff, who can answer any questions you may have.
  • We will introduce you to our school virtually, explaining how our academic curriculum is complemented by a full extracurricular programme and underpinned by strong core values and exceptional pastoral care. 
  • We’ll also outline our school environment, which provides safe, nurturing and inclusive spaces where children receive a high level of individual care and attention.
  • And we’ll familiarise you with our Cambridge International Curriculum, which encourages our students to explore a variety of subjects and activities to help them maximise their potential.
  • Additionally, we’ll underline our sports, arts and technology programmes which provide balance to ensure our students develop as well-rounded, confident individuals with a wide range of abilities.
  • We’ll define our simple step-by-step admissions process. We are still able to enrol your child during Covid-19 alert levels.

Numbers are limited, so please book early to secure your place.
