Year 6 into 7 transition
In order to support students making the transition to Atlantic Academy, we work with Primary schools to get to know pupils in advance of them joining us, and key members of staff visit the local primary schools during the Spring and Summer terms of Year 6.
In the summer term, we offer an introduction meeting with parents, and induction days where the new cohort can work together and meet staff. Students will follow their Year 7 timetable on these induction days, helping to get to know the site, the subjects and their new teachers. Student leaders from other year groups will guide pupils around on these days.
We invite all prospective students and their families to our open evening, held in the first half term of the academic year. Dates will be advertised on our website in advance, as well as through local primary schools and in local press. Alternatively, please contact us to arrange a visit to our site.
