Year 6 Transition


We would like to take this opportunity to say how delighted we are that your child will be joining

The St Leonards Academy in September 2024.

The St Leonards Academy provides an education that develops the personal skills of students as well as challenging them academically and enabling them to achieve the highest standards.

Part of our role in the transition process, is to ensure everything is as smooth and manageable as possible. As a result of feedback including student and parent voice, we continually adapt our transition process to ensure students arrive at The St Leonards Academy physically, mentally and emotionally prepared for this next exciting phase of education.

Starting secondary school is an exciting phase in education and we very much hope that your child is looking forward to joining us and experiencing all that The St Leonards Academy has to offer. We do of course recognise that along with the sense of excitement, there will understandably be a few nerves for pupils, parent and carers alike and we endeavour to ensure that our transition process will help to overcome these.
