Year 6 - 7 Transition

At The Priory Ruskin Academy, we believe that a smooth, positive and exciting transition from Year 6 to Year 7 is crucial for a confident start at secondary school in September.

Primary School Visit - Summer Term

During the Summer Term, we aim to visit every young person (who has been offered a place at The Priory Ruskin Academy) at their primary school so that we can get to know them individually.  We also liaise with their primary school teachers and collect information which aids us when allocating Form Tutor groups and teaching groups.

Welcome Day – July

In July, we invite all Year 6 students (who have been offered a place at The Priory Ruskin Academy) to attend a `Welcome Day` where they will be able to experience life at secondary school, taking part in activities in a number of subjects and enjoying a meal in the academies restaurant.     Details about the day will be sent to parents/carers by post.
