King Edward VI offers every child the opportunity to fulfil their academic, creative and sporting potential to ensure each and every child achieves academic success.

Transition process

The transition between primary school and secondary school can be daunting for young people and their parents. At King Edward VI Academy we do all that we can to make this process smooth by getting to know each student as well as possible during the months before term begins in September. From the student's first visit to their induction days in July we stay in touch and can help with any issues, questions or worries that the child or parent has. We visit the young people in their primary school and speak to their teachers, we look at their work and really get a picture of what we can do to make the students feel that moving on to secondary school is part of a continuation of their education rather than a completely new set of experiences and challenges.

Who will be visiting your school?

Our Head of Transition Mrs J Ryan and Mrs J Shudell our assistant SENDCo.
