As well as the below taster videos, please check out the Art activity https://bit.ly/2NGcqwo and English Poem https://bit.ly/3id9Fk8to accompany the videos.

Parents - you are also missing out on the Parents' evening which we would have held tonight. So, we have recorded what we would have said and hope you find it useful. You should also have received, in the post, a handbook with more info about Academy life to help prepare your child for a start at the Academy.

#Transition Tuesday

As we get closer to the end of term, a lot of you will have questions about starting at the Academy. A couple of weeks ago, we asked you what you wanted to know, here are the answers to the question some Year 6's students sent in. We hope they are helpful to everyone.

Next Tuesday, would have been your Transition day in the Academy and to mark the occasion we will share some video taster lessons that you can try at home or in school.

For parents, we will also post a video of the Parents' Evening that would have taken place on the evening.

Tuesday 2nd June 2020

Many young people feel a mixture of excitement, fear and nerves as they go to secondary school, probably more so this year because Year 6 has been disrupted due to COVID-19 and social distancing measures. We are very well aware of how big this transition is and, even with the restrictions, we are doing all we can to help your child, and you, settle into a new routine. Here is a site to support students and parents with this transition.

See some top tips from one of our Year 7 students:

We also know that you will have lots of questions, which ordinarily you would get the chance to ask us face to face. To try and address this we have created two online questionnaires; one is for parents and the other for students.  If you would like to share any questions with us can you please complete and submit by Friday 5th June. We will try and have answers to your queries next #transitiontuesday.
