Details for our planned Year 6 transition to Longsands Academy for September 2021 are as follows:

  • Transition visits – these involve teachers from Longsands visiting primary schools to work with Year 6 students and Year 6 students visiting Longsands to work with us here, during the Spring and Summer Terms.
  • Transition work – we currently have a programme of English and Maths transition work, which is set by Longsands teachers and completed by Year 6 students at primary school during the Summer Term. This work is passed over our Staff ready for use at the start of the Autumn Term.
  • Transition Visits – the Head of Year will visit primary schools during the Summer Term to talk to students about Longsands.
  • Data Collection – further information and admission forms will be sent to parents to collect student details in the Summer Term.
