Year 6 Transition Arrangements

12th June 2017

Our transition Day for all Year 6 students joining us in September will be on Monday, 10th July. Priory Lane students will have a separate induction day of Friday, 14th July.

Please ensure that your child arrives at the academy wearing their usual school uniform for 8.20a. Lunch will be at 12.30pm and children can either purchase a meal from the canteen (£2.30) or bring a packed lunch. Arrangements will be made for those children who access free school meals. The school day will finish at 2.30pm and you may collect your child from either the Chandos Road, Friars Road or Bridges road gates at this time.

During the day there will be a number of sample lessons, a tour of the school building and lunch in the Atrium. Your child will also be measured for their new uniform pack which will be free for all new Year 7 students. The pack consists of a blazer, a pair of trousers or skirt, a twin pack of long sleeved shirts, a clip-on tie, a long sleeved and short sleeved PE top, a pair of shorts and a pair of PE socks. These packs will be available for you to collect prior to the start of the summer holidays.

In addition to the Induction Day, we will also be hosting an Induction Evening on Monday, 10th July from 6pm. This is an opportunity for you and your child to have further information about the organisation and curriculum together with being able to ask any questions you may have. Key staff, including form tutors will be available during the evening to speak with.
