Hundreds of visitors come to have a look around CBA
Nearly 800 people came to have a look around Corby Business Academy during our Open Week last week.
Year 6 students and their parents were invited to come and get a taste of what life at the Academy is like between Monday, October 1, and Friday, October 5.
A presentation was made to visitors before they were shown around the building by Sixth Formers and members of staff.
The presentation and tour sessions took place twice every day and there were two additional guided tours at 5.30pm and 7pm on the first two days of the week.
Vice Principal Lorraine Smith said: “We were delighted to have nearly 800 visitors over the course of the week. Some of the visitors were so impressed they returned to a different session and brought partners and members of their family back with them.”
Feedback from visitors included comments from one visitor who praised their Sixth Form tour guide, describing the student as “incredibly enthusiastic, well presented, polite and engaging”.
Other visitors said they were “very impressed” and had got an “excellent impression of the facilities and ethos of the Academy” during their tours.
