Moving up from Year 6

We know that getting secondary education off to a flying start can make a big difference to your child’s educational journey.

We employ a dedicated Transition Teacher, who works with your child in their primary school during Year 6, continuing to work with them through the first term of Year 7. This member of staff gets to know your child, their strengths and challenges before they start at the Academy, and provides continuity once they join us.

We also offer a Transition Programme that provides opportunities for you and your child to meet Academy teachers and support staff, to visit the Academy, and to meet the students from other schools who will be in their form when they start.

Take a look at our video to support your transition to the Academy.

Our Form Tutors have a message for you…
