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.
