We recognize 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.
Hi all, the summer holidays are flying by, we are in week two already! Just a couple of things I wanted to remind everyone of before school uniform shopping commences. Trainers are not an acceptable part of the uniform (this includes the popular 'Nike Air Force One' - they are trainers and not school shoes).
I have ordered stationery for every student in Year 7. On their first day, along with their planner, they will be given a pencil case which includes a pen, pencil, ruler, rubber and a green pen.
Enjoy the rest of the Summer and see you all very soon!
