We’re opening our doors to the community for one day only, so families can come and explore our futuristic academy.
Try out explosive experiments, VR, engineering activities, robots, electric cars – and many more activities at WMG Academy Solihull’s Open Day!
Our science labs, engineering hall, and in fact all areas of the building will come alive with fun activities for all ages.
Meet staff, students and alumni, explore our facilities, have a selfie with our Jaguar car, and come and find out about the courses we offer and the partners we work with, including Rolls-Royce, National Grid, Aston Martin, Bosch, Jaguar Land Rover, Balfour Beatty, Arup, WMG and the University of Warwick.
The academy accepts students aged 14-19 but the open day is free for everyone to attend.
