We know that moving to Secondary School can seem daunting – for parents as well as children. This can be particularly challenging in our rural community, where children may be used to a very small school site.

We have developed a programme of events to support this transition. However, if you feel you need individual support or reassurance please do not hesitate to contact me via


Transition Events:

  • Individual meetings – from after Autumn Half Term. Ms Robinson will meet your child in their own school – whether or not it is in catchment.
  • Visits to the whole class by Mrs Boyes, Ms Robinson and past pupils to answer any questions the children may have – from May onwards
  • Treasure Hunts – March/April – a chance to look around when the school is quiet. You will receive an invitation.
  • Parents’ Information Evening - April 22nd. This is a chance to meet key staff and learn about the way the Academy operates.
  • Meet the tutor – Tuesday 2nd July.
  • Transition Day – Wednesday 3rd July.
  • Additional events aimed at those joining the school on their own/in small groups so that they can make friends in advance.
  • Welcome postcard.
  • Staggered start – the year group will have the school to themselves on the first day of the Autumn term.
  • Transition meetings with parents of children with additional needs.
  • Additional visits for children who may struggle with change.
