Welcome to the Academy


This is where we will provide you with the information, support and guidance to ensure your child has a successful and productive transition from primary school to secondary school.


The New Student section of our website will be updated regularly to support parents, carers and students through the transition process.  We aim to add short videos, testimonies, guidance, information and documents that will enable your child to understand our high expectations of all at the academy and prepare for what life will be like day-in day-out at the academy.

We are really excited to have your child join us at The Featherstone Academy and we want to make this transition as smooth as possible.  We appreciate that all student’s experiences and needs are different and we tailor our transition programme to make sure every child can start at the academy feeling confident that they are ready to learn.

Our core values at the academy are Responsibility, Aspiration and Pride.  During the transition programme your child will learn what these core values mean to us as an academy and how they are reflected in everyday academy life.

We hope you find the information on this page useful.  Please view the welcome video below from our Assistant Head.
