Ruskin Transition Day 2017
Over two hundred Year 6 students, who have successfully secured a place to join the Ruskin family in Year 7 from September, joined us for a jam-packed transition day yesterday (4th July). The day started with a welcome assembly from Ms Wyles, with students then joining their form group for a tour of the Academy and to spend some time getting to know the new faces they will be spending, we are sure, seven very happy years with! Students filled out their ‘Ruskin leaves’ on which they detail their aspiration and dreams for the future, these will be revisited at various points during their years with us as we see them grow and flourish.
Our new students then attended normal ‘taster’ lessons for the rest of the day before their parents arrived at the Academy for their own welcome assembly. As everyone left after a busy day, it was wonderful to see so many happy and excited young people (and parents!) chatting about their experiences that day…and we are so looking forward to welcoming them back when they all start properly in September.
