Y6 Transition

Year 7 students letter to Year 6 students

Transition from primary to secondary school is an exciting and daunting time for children, parents and carers.

To support a smooth transition to the academy we have an extensive programme to help students feel secure and comfortable. We work closely with our feeder primary schools on our transition programme where students have the opportunity to participate in activities at Thorp Academy with our staff from year 3.

We work closely with our sponsors Northern Education Trust to ensure that the students at Thorp Academy receive an excellent education.We also work closely with parent/carers in ensuring a close partnership between home and school, sharing the common ground of bringing out the best in your son or daughter.

If you would like additional information or a tour of the academy please contact Mrs Ruth Marklew, Assistant Principal.
