Transition to SBL Academy

Welcome to Year 7


Welcome to Year 7

We are delighted that your child will be joining Sir Bernard Lovell Academy in September 2021.

At Sir Bernard Lovell Academy we understand that starting secondary school is an exciting time, and yet things may also be a little daunting for many students. We work closely with our primary schools to make sure transition into Sir Bernard Lovell Academy is as smooth as possible.

Please take the opportunity to explore our main school website which has a wealth of important and useful information. Importantly, parents/carers should explore this section carefully as it comprises the welcome information which has been written to help smooth your child’s transition to SBL Academy.

SBL Academy has a well-established transition programme for children moving up from primary school.

As part of the transition process we gather lots of information about the students who are starting with us. We talk to Year 6 teachers and Primary SENDCO's and under normal circumstances would meet all the children at their primary school and again in our Transition Day. We are currently working with our primary colleagues to ensure our transition activities are conducted in a manner that is safe for children, their families and the staff involved.

What should I do next?
