Year 6 Transition
Welcome to Parkwood E-ACT Academy!
We are delighted that you are joining us in September and we can’t wait to meet you. We understand moving from Primary School to Secondary School can be an exciting but anxious time for both students and parents and we are committed to ensuring the transition is as smooth as possible for all students.
We have put together a range of resources and events to help you get to know the academy and introduce you to key members of staff who are here to support you through your transition.
Your new Year 7 Progress team would like to introduce themselves:
Progress Leader Progress Manager
Mr Walsh Mr Thompson
Please click on each of their photos to view their introduction videos!
Over the next few weeks all Year 6s who are joining us in September will receive an exciting delivery of goodies through their Primary school. It will also contain information on our upcoming transition days, more details of which can be found below.
Please take a picture of you with your goodie bag and tag us on social media (@ParkwoodAcademy) using the #I’mComingtoParkwood.
Unfortunately due to ongoing restrictions we are unable to run the transition events previously advertised. We are working to organise alternative arrangements and will be in touch as soon as possible.
On a positive note, we are going to make the first two days of the 21/22 academic year exclusive for our new Year 7 cohort. This means Thursday 2nd and Friday 3rd September will be solely for Y7, with the rest of school returning on Monday 6th September.
We will be holding our annual summer school from Monday 16th August – Friday 20th August and all our future Year 7s are invited! This is a great chance to make new friends and get to know the academy and staff during fun -filled days, before you start school in September. We have had huge interest in this so far, we will be running sessions throughout Monday-Thursday and then pupils will be going on a trip on Friday!
Whilst restrictions haven’t allowed us to welcome you into the academy this year, we’ve been busy creating you a Virtual Tour of our academy.
Whilst exploring the academy, you’ll have a chance to view our amazing facilities, meet all the staff who will be looking after you and teaching you in September and hear about the exciting subjects you’ll be studying.
