Year 6 Transition 2021

Unfortunately we are unable to hold our traditional induction days for pupils and transition evenings for parent/carers in response to government guidance regarding Covid-19 and the number of pupils allowed in secondary schools and social distancing restrictions.

With that in mind, we have put together individual videos from your Form Tutors (see links below) and also a short video that consists of:

  • a very warm welcome from our Principal, Mrs McClurg
  • a virtual tour of the Academy
  • information directly from two of our current Year 7 students who were in your position just 12 months ago
  • a welcome from our Head of Year 7, Mrs Roberts-Jones

Form Tutor Welcome Videos

You will have received an email from the Academy telling your which Form Group you will join in September.

Each of our special Year 7 Form Tutors has recorded their own unique video for you to enjoy and get to know a little bit more about them.
