Visiting the Academy
We look forward to welcoming parents, carers and visitors to Broadlands Academy as we are proud of our wonderful school! Please be aware however, that staff have teaching and meeting commitments throughout each day, and will therefore only be able to meet if a prior appointment has been arranged. If you have an urgent issue, please contact Main Reception who will advise about the best course of action. Sometimes this may involve seeing a different member of staff who is better placed to deal with the issue raised, rather than the original member of staff requested.
