Year 6 Transition

Year 6 Transition 2021

We know some Year 6 students and their parents/carers will be wondering what is happening about transition and feeling anxious. We have been busy planning the transition this year with the emphasis on being able to have students back with us for our very popular transition days, where students can have a hands on experience of the academy before they start the academic year in September. Subject to covid19 restrictions being lifted, these days will take place on 1st and 2nd July 2021. Our very successful Year 6 Transition website is also now live to aid with the Year 6 transition process.

We believe in giving the students the greatest start possible with us at the academy. 

As you navigate through the pages, you will find all the important information you will need before starting with us in September. More information will be added and updated week by week. There will be tasks and challenges for the students and important updates for parents and carers, so check back regularly to keep informed. 

The website will be emailed to all parents we hold email addresses for. If you know this is information we don’t have please send your contact details stating your child’s name, and your contact information to [email protected]

Please don’t hesitate to email [email protected] or [email protected] if you have any concerns or questions about transition. We are looking forward to meeting and working with you all soon.

Getting Ready to Start Secondary School

Please follow the link and read the document below for some very good advice.

Starting secondary school can be both exciting and a little bit scary for you and your child.

As parents and carers, preparing for this change and making sure that your child feels able to take the step from primary school can feel difficult.

However, there are many ways in which we can help our children – and ourselves – feel ready.
