New Year 7 Students - September 2018

Summer Holiday preparation work for Year 7.

Download a copy of the summer holiday homework booklets that were issued to incoming students on induction day.  Included in this are some extension tasks in mathematics that will help to prepare them for their baseline tests.

The first day of term for Year 7 will be Wednesday 5th September.

We know that moving from primary to secondary school can sometimes be daunting for a child, and their parents or carers, so we try to make the transition as smooth as possible.  We run a transition programme for our new students before they arrive at the Academy which involves visits to primary schools, one-to-one interviews and an induction day, all of which we know from experience helps to ensure a successful move to secondary school.

We have written to parents of our incoming Year 7s regarding an intake interview on either the 5th, 6th, 7th or 12th of June.  In the letter we refer to an information booklet; this is available to download below.  However you can find answers to some frequently asked questions from parents on this site in the following locations:

We wanted to share with you the recent successes and achievements of our students.  In 2017 our GCSE results were the best ever for the Academy with 68% of our students achieving 9-4 in the new tougher English & mathematics exams, above the national average.  In their A level exams, our students achieved 100% pass rate with 31% A*-A.  110 students gained a place at their first choice university with several students receiving offers from Cambridge and Oxford universities.  22% students received offers from Russell Group universities.

Our students make amazing progress in such a variety of ways.  We are ranked in the top three schools in Wandsworth for the progress our students make between joining in Year 7 and the end of Year 11.

We pride ourselves on the pastoral care that we give our students.  We see each as an individual and we will do our utmost to ensure that the needs of all of our students are met during their time at the Academy to equip them for a successful future.
