SEN Visits from Teaching Assistants

Summer Term

Each of our Feeder Primary Schools has a designated teaching assistant (TA) who will visit students with Special Educational Needs (SEN) and arrange extra activities and provision to ease their transition into secondary school. To find out which schools they visit click here.  Information will also be gathered and visits planned if apropriate for those students who will be transitioning from primary schools not classed as Feeder Primary Schools.

Core Subject Activity Days

Summer Term

In addition to the visits from our teaching assistants, teaching staff from the 3 core subject areas – Maths, English and Science – will run ‘fun’, subject specific activities in the primary schools. For more details please contact the Academy on (01623) 663450.

Summer School 

This will run from the 23rd August till 27th August and is free to all students who hold a place with us. The times of the week are 9am till 2pm, and a free lunch is provided for all students. 

The programme includes a core element of Maths, English, Science and Technology, with some Performing Arts and Sport built into the structure of the day. As this is the week before the students start with us full time, Summer School is an exciting opportunity to make new friends and also sharpen up on classroom skills to ensure a flying start to the new term.
