Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Transition

From Primary to Secondary School

Children joining our Academy all have the opportunity to build relationships with us and learn about the next stages of their education prior to starting with us in September.

Primary children and parents have a transition parents meeting in the summer term where they are given information about our Academy and who will be the class tutor for their time in our Academy. It is a great opportunity to build a relationship with the Academy as you will get to ask questions and find out that valuable information, including who's who.

All year 6 students are invited in to the Academy for a taster day, where they will meet their form tutor and their peers for the next 5 years. We hope that this helps to settle some of the nerves that come with changing environments - especially since we understand how daunting it can be knowing you are the newest and youngest members of the family! With our taster day, our prospective students go home safe in the knowledge that they have walked the corridors of the Academy, met their teacher and most importantly made friends. 

It is our priority to help with this change, therefore we welcome any feedback and support from parents and carers on making this process easier for their children. 

Staying on for Sixth Form

We hope that we have made enough of a lasting positive impression on our students that they stay with us for sixth form! 

Throughout Year 11, our students will have the opportunity to meet with our current sixth form committee to get a feel of what our sixth form can offer. To find out more about our Sixth Form click here

Parents and carers are also invited to attend a Sixth Form Open evening with their son/daughter where you will learn more about our Academy offer and get to talk to our A Level and BTEC subject leads about what their courses involve and the type of applicant they are looking for. Application forms and options leaflets will be given out during the information evening, however these are available during the year also.
