At The Whitehaven Academy, we understand that making the transition from primary to secondary school is an exciting time for both you and your child. We believe that the key to immediate success at secondary school is having a positive and supportive transition. We pride ourselves in delivering a well-structured transition programme to help make the move from Primary school to Secondary school a great success. Parents and Year 7 students tell us that it works really well, although we are always aiming to make it even better!
As your child moves into Year 6 you will be invited to attend our Year 6 Open Evening. This event is held in September every year and gives both parents and students a chance to see the whole school in one evening. There are a huge range of interactive activities on offer along with a speech from the Headteacher, Mr Youngman, giving an overview of the school. Mr Youngman also encourages parents and students to arrange a personal tour of the school on a normal working day so that you can see how our core values of Respect, Responsibility and Resilience underpin everything we do here at The Whitehaven Academy.
By the end of October your family will have decided about which secondary school you would like your child to attend and we hope that it will be the start of a great partnership with The Whitehaven Academy.
