Year 6 Transition

Transferring to  Secondary School can be an unsettling whilst exciting time for Year 6 students. This part of the website should help you by answering some of the questions you may have before starting at the Academy in September 2018.

Please use your time to go through the different sections and familiarise yourself with the Academy day, how to use your planner, uniform and much more.

In the meantime, if you have been offered a place in the Academy starting in September you will be invited to a “Liaison Day” on Thursday 12th July 2018 where you will meet your Pastoral Leader, members in your form, some teachers and the pastoral team who are there to support you. You will also be invited to an “Activity Day” on the Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday week commencing 16th July.

During June and July this year you will either receive a visit from your Pastoral Leader and two Year 7 students that used to come to your school, or be invited to the Academy for a tour. During this time you can ask any questions that are causing you concern.  

In this website you will also see that the Holiday Programme is packed full of events for you to attend during the first week of the summer holidays. This programme is designed specifically for you and to help you with the transition to the Academy.
