The Discovery Academy

Year 6 Transition


We recognise that the transition from primary to secondary school is an important milestone in the lives of children and their families. The experience is often exciting and daunting. Here at The Discovery Academy we offer an extensive transition programme where pupils feel cared for, supported and excited about starting the next chapter of their education.
Due to the continuing Covid-19 situation and the national school closures we have made significant changes to our transition programme this year. Here we will be posting a variety of information for both parents and our new Year 7 pupils. We hope that you find it helpful and we look forward to welcoming you to the Academy in September.
