Transition 2019/2020
Welcome to the St Leonards Academy

We'd like to offer a very warm welcome to everyone who's been offered a place at The St Leonards Academy for this September.

We pride ourselves in our uncompromising commitment to maximising the potential of our students at the St Leonards Academy to ensure their brighter futures. We provide a welcoming, safe, happy and successful environment, where everyone are respected and listened to, a school where we take pride in our achievements and celebrate our success.

We invite you to ‘Join our Pride’.

What happens now?

Starting secondary school can be a daunting experience, so we aim to make this process as supportive and seamless as possible.

Every student will be visited at their primary school by a member of the senior leadership team during terms 5 and 6 and prior to the taster days, all parents and students will be invited to The St Leonards Academy to meet with an Academy leader. This gives us the opportunity to meet our new cohort and share key information about the academy and our values.

Taster days will take place on Wednesday 3rd, Thursday 4th and Friday 5th July 2019 where students will experience three days at the academy; attending a range of lessons, making new friends, meeting teachers and getting to know their way around the building. There will be plenty of opportunities to work and play outdoors, and students will develop skills in teamwork, creativity, study and communication.

Summer school will be running from Monday 29th July – Fri 2nd August which aims to further support your son/daughter’s transition to secondary school. Further details about summer school will be released shortly.

If you have any questions regarding transition, please contact Caroline Tasker, Assistant Principal.
