Information for New Intake 2020

Transition Days for Year 6 sadly will not take place in July. We are working on alternative ways of contacting and supporting Year 6 students as they think about moving up to secondary school. This page will be updated as new information is issued.

3 July 2020: Transition Days Online!

At the beginning of July, we would normally welcome Year 6 to school to take part in Transition Days, where they would meet their tutor group and take part in lessons across the curriculum. As we are not able to do that this year, we have produced resources to introduce your child to some of the staff and the subjects that they will be studying in Year 7.

Please spend some time exploring the resources with your child by clicking on the red button below.

If you have any questions, please contact the Transition Team. Details of how to get in touch can be found further down the page.


A ‘Fitting Event’ was held by our main provider of school uniform ‘Just Schoolwear’ on Wednesday 8 July. If you did not attend the event, you can place your orders online at, where they offer a ‘click and collect’ service. There is also ‘Measurement Guidance’ on the website to help with your sizing.

Go to Useful Links below for details of our Uniform Requirements. The tie for Year 7 is red with a GREEN stripe. A tie will be provided on the first day of term by the Academy. It is advisable to buy a spare from Just Schoolwear or from the Academy. Ties are available to purchase on ParentPay during the school year.
