Starting Year 7

Transition 2019

We are looking forward to welcoming our new Year 7 students.

Details of transition events and information for parents is available on this web page – please check back regularly.

At Mascalls Academy we pride ourselves on our Transition programme.  Students joining the academy are offered a number of opportunities to visit and become familiar with their new school environment.

As soon as a student has accepted a place at Mascalls, the transition process begins.   The aim is for every student to feel confident and safe in their new school setting.

All students are visited in their primary school by a member of the Mascalls Academy Transition or Pastoral team. Members of staff meet students to discuss life as a Year 7 student and answer any questions or concerns they may have. Every student will, therefore, know at least one member of staff before they start.

Induction Morning for academic year 2019-20 is on Thursday 4 July 2019 from 9am-12.45pm and is a great opportunity for children to experience some lessons, tour the school site, see the canteen and other important aspects of secondary school life.

Our New Parent Information Evening is on Thursday 6 June 2019 from 6.30-7.30pm and is an evening for parents and new students to meet their Head of College and key college staff.  Travel advice will be available and our uniform suppliers be present with special offers and promotions.

Finally, there will be chance for you to meet your child’s advisor at our Meet the Advisor Evening on Thursday 12 September 2019 from 4.45pm-6.15pm to discuss how your child is settling in and any concerns you may have in their first days.
