Early closures for open evening on Monday 23rd September

Dear parents/carers

Early closures for open evening on Monday 23rd September

On Monday 23 September we will be holding our Open Evening event.  To give staff an opportunity to prepare and get displays ready, we will be closing the school early on Friday 20 and Monday 23 September.

The school day will finish at 12.30pm on both days. 

Students will be encouraged to leave the site immediately, although there will be a full lunch offer available on both days.  Free school meals allowances will be available.

If your child has been selected to help at the Open Evening on Monday 23 September please ensure you have completed and returned the permission slip to the relevant department.  The evening will finish at 8.00pm.

Finally, all students now leave from Pullman Gardens as the exit is larger.  To respect local residents, if you are collecting students by car please arrange to meet them away from Pullman Gardens and Hayward Gardens as the roads are very narrow and becoming easily congested.

Thank you in advance for your co-operation.

With best wishes

Alison Downey


Jack Petchey Speak Out

Before the Easter holiday, Tyrese represented APA in the Wandsworth Regional Jack Petchey Speakout Challenge final. The Jack Petchey Speak Out Challenge is a speaking competition for Year 10 students and includes a one day public speaking workshop held at school. The winner of that session is then taken forward to represent the school at a Regional final. 

Tyrese, with a speech entitled 'Dear Dad' and came third out of 14 standout speeches.
