Getting ready for Year 7

Knutsford Academy Year 7 Transition Programme for September 2021

The Academy offers an extensive transition programme to support the move from Year 6 in Primary School to starting here in September. Through the programme we aim to prepare students for the big change from primary to secondary education, this includes transitions days on site in July where you meet your teachers and get to make new friends with your year group, plus an extensive range of activities to help you get used to the site.

We also send out a detailed welcome pack in May and parents are invited to a welcome evening in June. During the summer term our Head of Year 7 and pastoral team are out visiting local primary schools speaking to Year 6 teachers and getting to meet Year 6 students who are starting at the Academy in September.

Hopefully in 2021 our transition programme will return back to a sense of normality, however to support our current Year 7  in the summer of 2020 we produced a number of short films to introduce the Academy as we were unable to offer our traditional transition days. The links for these are provided below which give a flavour of life here and preparing for Year 7.

We will update this page with the plans for the transition programme in the spring of 2021.
