Preparing for transition

Year 5

In Year 5, your primary school teachers will work with Academy staff to give you opportunities to extend your learning.  This could be either through using Academy facilities or through lessons being led at some points in the year by Academy staff. 

You will meet the Head of Year 7 from The Academy and have the opportunity in Year 6 to ask questions about transfering to The Academy.

Year 6

In Year 6, you will be visited by The Head of Year 7 on a number of occasions to meet and talk about transferring to The Academy.  You will have chances to work with the Head of Year 7 and other Academy staff at your primary school.  On other occasions, your year group will be invited to The Academy to have learning days using the facilities that The Academy has to offer.  This could be led by either your own primary school teachers or teachers from The Academy.

In the Summer Term, all students in Year 6 who have chosen The Academy, will be invited to our Induction Evening and to an Induction Day a day or two later with students from other primary schools.  On the Induction Day, you will have the chance to experience a range of lessons with Academy teachers.

Some students will attend The Academy on additional days to ensure a smooth transition.
