See our Welcome Video

Welcome to the new Transition section of our website!  We are really looking forward to meeting all of our new Year 7 students in September.  Within this page, you will find everything you need to know to help you prepare for this important transition in your educational journey.  Please watch our Welcome Video where you’ll be able to hear from our Principal in September, Mr Mallinson along with other key members of staff that you will be working with.  You can also enjoy a virtual experience of the Academy through our Tour of the Academy video.

Check out our Transition Welcome Pack that has been posted out to all families who will be joining us in September, along with details of our upcoming ‘Meet your Form Tutor’ Events.  This includes the ‘Meet your Form Tutor’ Evening Guide video as well as our Assistant Principal Transition Presentation video from Miss Loveday (Assistant Principal) that will be showcased on the evening.

We would encourage all families to engage with our Bridging Activities that have been produced across The GORSE Academies Trust; these activities will help prepare you for your studies at secondary school.  Finally, to help us get to know our new students better, please complete our ‘Getting to know you’ activity which will provide us with some additional information about you as an individual.
