Yate Academy

Starting Secondary School

We understand that starting secondary school is a big step for many children and our transition programme aims to make this as easy as possible.

From the moment that the places are secured, we consider you part of the Yate Academy community. Our Transition team will ensure that there is excellent communication between us and the primary school to ensure that we are aware of individual needs. The Transition Days that take place in the summer will give students the chance to experience lessons, meet older students, make new friends and feel comfortable in the new environment.

Students who need an enhanced Transition experience will be given the extra support so that we can make sure that September is exciting!

One of the best things that you can do to help your child make the leap to secondary school is to support their reading. Please see the attachment below for the KS3 reading list.
