Transition (Y6 - Y7)


Transition from Primary to Secondary school

It is with great pleasure that we welcome you to The Priory Ruskin Academy.  At the 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.  The information below aims to support you and your child through this process.


Starting at Ruskin in September

For year 7, we request that students arrive for a 9.05 start using the front entrance of the Academy; departure time will be 3.20 p.m.
