Whether you are an upcoming Year 7 student, a current student, a parent or carer, welcome to everything you need to know about transition at Bruntcliffe Academy. On this page, you will find all the information regarding our transition days and contact details if you have any questions. However, I would first like to introduce myself directly to our future students:
My name is Mrs Fowler, I am the Achievement Leader for Year 7, and my responsibility is to ensure all future students have a smooth and successful transition to Bruntcliffe Academy.
As you make the step up to secondary school, there are lots of changes in your life that may cause you worry or anxiety. It is my role as achievement leader to make that journey as enjoyable and stress free as it can be.
I will be here to support you into becoming independent and resilient learners, who leave Bruntcliffe Academy as successful young adults, ready for future endeavours.
My door is always open to listen to any worries you may have, and to celebrate your successes along the way.
I look forward to hopefully meeting you in September when you become part of Bruntcliffe Academy.
In the week commencing June 12th, myself and Mrs Mann, our Vice-Principal, will be visiting all our primary feeder schools. During this time we will meet with our future students, give them information about what will happen on the July transition day, but mainly answer any questions students may have about life at Bruntcliffe Academy.
At the end of May, you will receive a letter outlining the dates for transition and offering a personalised choice to the transition days from a selection of sport sessions.
From the 19th June, we will be sending out specific details about our three Year 6 transition days with information on practical matters, such as, where to buy school uniform, the forms that need to be filled out regarding your personal details and the school rules. This letter will also give you specific timings on when to arrive at Bruntcliffe and what sessions we will be offering.
The 2018 Year 6 transition days will take place on July 2nd, 3rd and 4th. Over these three days, we will be offering sessions in English, Maths, Science, Art, History, Geography, a choice of sport sessions, with a special surprise event taking place on the Tuesday. On the Wednesday evening, all parents and carers are invited to Bruntcliffe Academy to see the work that their children will have produced over the three transition days as we will be putting on an exhibition, alongside a fabulous dinner.
There will also be opportunity to meet the new Year 7 form tutors and to go through all the academy rules and help with any questions that may still be un-answered. This will also be the opportunity to return the student detail forms.
I look forward to meeting you all shortly.
Please note: All Year 7 students, starting in September, will be studying Spanish.
Our 2018 Year 5 transition day will take place on the 10th July with sessions in English, Science and Art. At the end of May, we will be sending out communication to the primary schools, offering key details about when transition will occur for Year 5 students at Bruntcliffe Academy.
As a school, we will also be supporting our local primary schools from the week commencing the 10th July, offering bespoke sessions in English and Maths. If you would like further detail about this, please do not hesitate to ask.
