Transition Summer School Posted on: 26 Jan 2016

The academy will be running its annual Transition Summer School in the first full week of the summer holidays, Monday 25th July to Thursday 28rd July, from 9:30am to 3:00pm each day.  This will be open to all current Year 6 pupils who are offered, and accept, a place with us in September.

There will be a cost of £30 in total for the summer school, though pupils who are eligible for Pupil Premium will not be charged. The charge has been necessitated as, from this year, summer schools will no longer receive funding from central government; the £30 charge will to help us meet a proportion of the running costs.

We intend to provide a wide range of activities to give pupils a taste of secondary school life and to offer an opportunity to familiarise them with some of our staff and facilities.  There will be a range of subjects on offer and learning will be delivered through fun activities, rather than formal lessons. Pupils who request a place must commit to attending on all four days.

Further details and confirmation will be sent out later in the summer term,
