Year 6 Transition
Welcome to Oasis Academy Lord’s Hill
Whilst the academy is closed and we are unable to host visits, it is extremely important that new parents and students are able to get to know us and learn more about the academy.
Over the coming weeks, we will be sharing videos on this page, introducing our team of dedicated teachers and providing information about how we support children with the move to secondary school.
If you have any concerns about your child’s transition to the Academy please do not hesitate to contact us.
General transition issues:
Mrs Lisa Mouland
If you would like a conversation with the Principal please contact Keri Jenkins (Principal's PA).
We are always very excited at the prospect of a new group of Year 7 students joining us in September and we very much hope that we can ensure that the transition from Year 6 into Year 7 is smooth and constructive.
The traditional transition process:
- During the summer term Mrs Mouland, our Head of Year 7 and Transition, will be making arrangements for visits to every primary school that have students coming to the Academy.
- Senior Leaders from the Academy will come in to meet the students who will have an opportunity to ask questions following a short presentation.
- Students will be invited to attend two ’Transition Days' in July; both days likely to start at 9.00 and finish at 2.45. Students will enjoy a range of fun activities that will help them to get used to their new environment.
- Some students may be particularly anxious about moving to secondary school, staff from our special educational needs and personalised learning teams will work closely with these students to ensure that they are given appropriate support. In our experience, staff from the primary schools give us helpful information about any particular needs.
