Year 6 Transition

This is a great opportunity for students to get to know staff and ask any questions they may have.

Arriving at any new education establishment can seem slightly daunting, so from the time that new students have their places confirmed, we try to make them feel part of Bradford Forster Academy by inviting them and their parents into the school on various occasions before the start of their first term.

 There are many opportunities for the year 6 students to get to know their new teachers and classmates and to find their way around our state of the art building, so that they arrive for their first day in September confident that they belong here.

Our transition work starts with a Transition Evening, which is an opportunity for Parents and Students to find out more about Transition Day, uniform, expectations and of course ask any questions they may have. This evening nicely sets students and parents / carers up for Transition Day; This day is a Bradford wide transition day in which all of our new students will complete a day at Bradford Forster Academy, getting to know staff and the building, completing activities and making new friends.

In addition to Transition Day, we may run a Buddy Day should we feel that some individuals may need more support making the transition to secondary. This day is designed for a small group of children to make new friends and feel comfortable about joining us in September.

This is a great opportunity for students to get to know staff and ask any questions they may have.

Whilst all this is going on our Pastoral Team are busy visiting primary schools and meeting with all children joining us in September. This is a great opportunity for students to get to know staff and ask any questions they may have.

Summer School is the last of the activities we run to make sure that all students are as prepared as possible for September. Summer School runs at the beginning of the summer holidays and is again designed for students to get to know each other, staff and the building. The summer school is run in-house and will provide our students with a mix of activities to choose from. Summer school days run between 10am and 3pm and detailed information regarding activities will be sent out during the summer term.
