Nottingham Academy

Transition to Year 7

Welcome, from the Year 7 Team.

The move from primary school to a large secondary school can be daunting, we recognise this and understand that students and parents need to feel reassured, happy, and safe during this transition period.

Nottingham Academy works with local primary schools from Year 4, providing activities and events to help pupils have a smooth transition to Nottingham Academy. 

Transition information will be sent to all pupils joining us in September by the end of June.

Below you will find links to download our prospectus and an example of the extracurricular activities available in Year 7 and 8. 

Traditionally 'The Journey' begins with a Parents' Meeting however this year plans are being developed to do this in a way that adheres to current social distancing guidelines. These plans will be shared with families once complete. 

Pupils usually have two transition days, in July to meet their tutors and new classmates, and learn more about what Nottingham Academy has to offer. This year we won't be able to welcome children and parents in this way but we are working on ways for you to get to know us digitally so keep checking here and on our Twitter page @NottinghamAcad to stay informed.
