Our transition team work closely with the feeder primary schools in preparation for the students’ move from primary to secondary school. Mr Anthony Hughes – Head of Year 7 and Mrs Fiona Tatlock – Student Manager hope to arrange meetings with feeder schools to meet all of the students before they come up to the Academy, and we speak in detail with your child’s current class teacher to gain as much information as possible.
In addition we have a team from English, Maths and Science who are working with our feeders to ensure academic continuity from Primary to Secondary and to help mitigate from the lost time caused by the pandemic
Each year we have a number of students who come from a primary school on their own. The Student Manager and Head of Year will be in contact with every school and ensure every student starts at the same starting point.
