13th + 14th June
Parents will watch a virtual broadcast from staff at the Academy and be introduced to some of the key details ahead of their child's transition from Primary.
22nd June
This session is specifically for students who are the only ones coming from their Primary School.
DAYS (x3)
29th June - 1st July
Students experience what life at the Academy is like, meeting other students and ‘sampling’ a few lessons.

We aim to make the transition process from Primary School as smooth as possible for all of our current and future students and have devised a strategy that encompasses their journey before, during and after the transition. This is a crucial time in a young person’s life and we strive to give a ‘wrap-around care’ approach to enable this phase to be seamless, with high-challenge and low anxiety.

Prior to joining the Academy, we visit each student at their Primary school, getting to know them and talking with their current class teacher. We seek to learn about their academic, social and emotional needs, as well as their plethora of talents.

We then enter the summer season with 3 important events as outlined below.

Parent Induction Evenings
Monday 13th and Tuesday 14th June

Our Year 6 Parent Induction Evenings will take place on Monday 13th and Tuesday 14th June. Further information about the event will be sent out in due course.

Single Sampler Session
Wednesday 22nd June (9:15am - 12 noon)

This morning is for students who are the only ones coming to St Wilfrid’s from their particular school.

Induction Days (x3)
Wednesday 29th June - Friday 1st July (8:40am - 3pm)

Our Year 6 Induction Days will take place from 8:40am – 3pm on Wednesday 29th June to Friday 1st July and will help your child experience life as a Wilfridian and see more of what the Academy has to offer. It is also a great opportunity for them to make new friends, meet our staff and for us to get to know them ahead of their start in September.

When September comes around and the academic year begins, the first two days are spent doing activities that help them become familiar with the environment and get to know each other and their Form Tutor.

Our Year 7 Student Support Team work closely with Form Tutors throughout the year, to provide a network of support for both students and parents. For any further information, please contact the Key Stage 3 POD.
