Year 6 Transition




At The Featherstone Academy we want your child to be happy and successful.  If we are to fulfill this aim it is important that we all work together as we all know that communication is the key to success.

JUNE 2020

Year 6 Transition booklets will be being distributed as soon as possible.  If your child is accessing a Year 6 school place, we will endeavour to hand deliver these to your child or their teacher.  Where your child is not currently accessing their primary school place, we will send the document to the postal address that we have been provided through Admissions.

As we are not currently able to accept any students into school for the usual Transition events, we are pleased to share the following video for all those will be joining us in September 2020.

The video lasts for 30 minutes.

We hope this answers some of your questions and gives you an insight to the academy.  We look forward to meeting you properly in September.



Year 6 Transition packs have now been posted and should be with all parents/carers by the end of this week – we have included a copy below for your information, together with some quick information links.  All Data Collection Forms must be returned to the academy no later than Friday 31 July 2020.  All policies and other school information are available to view on this website using the menus above.
