Southfields Academy

New Year 7 Students - September 2022

We look forward to meeting our new Year 7 cohort in September as they begin their journey through secondary school.  It is an exciting time for them, and they will have many opportunities and experiences ahead of them.

We have written to parents of our new students with information about the transition from primary to secondary school  If you have not received this letter and your child is due to start at Southfields Academy in September, please contact admissions@southfieldsacademy.com  

If you would prefer your child to come to Southfields Academy in September rather than the school they have been allocated, please email admissions@southfieldsacademy.com 

If you have not had the opportunity to visit the Academy but would like to do so, please email sean.french@southfieldsacademy.com to book an appointment for a tour.  We are very happy to host visits during the school day.

Primary to Secondary Transition

We know that moving from primary to secondary school can sometimes be a big step for a child, and their parents or carers, so we try to make the transition as smooth as possible.  We run a unique 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.  Occasionally a student will need further support after they start at the Academy.  In this case we offer a primary-secondary transition group which will ensure that, within a few weeks, a student is feeling secure, happy and confident about life at Southfields Academy.

The BBC has put together some information to support parents / carers with children transferring to secondary school.  Click here to visit.

There is a fantastic resource available to young people transitioning from Year 6 to Year 7 to help them get a headstart in mathematics, click here to visit the page and sign up for free.

Our successes

Our students make amazing progress in such a variety of ways and we pride ourselves on the pastoral care that we give them.  We see each child 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.

I look forward to welcoming your child to the Southfields Academy family in September.
