Leaving your primary school and moving to the new, much bigger world of secondary education can feel worrying and stressful. Our aim is to make all our new students feel welcome and safe so that you hit the ground running at the start of Year 7 and make a great start to what will hopefully be some of the best years of your life. We offer an excellent transition programme which allows children and parents to participate in several events before the child starts school in September to help support them through their journey into secondary school. Your child will have the opportunity to visit the Academy on Taster Day when students from all primary schools attend their new school for the day. Students spend the day at our academy, and in doing so, get an invaluable experience of what life is like at secondary school. They will take part in taster lessons, have the opportunity to experiment with the academy’s wide range different equipment, and are familiarised with the timings of the Academy day, including break and lunchtime arrangements.
The upcoming transition events are outlined below:
Interview Day - 12th June 2021
CATS testing – Wednesday 16th June – Friday 18th June 2021
Taster Day – 7th July 2021
You will be contacted throughout the year for further information about these transition events. If you have any questions regarding these events, please contact our Admissions Team via: email@example.com.
