Year 6 Transition


Year 6 Transition

Thank you for accepting a place at The Wells Academy for your child starting in September 2020. Please find attached a welcome Pack and an attendance information pack along with a letter from our Principal Mr Shepherd. 

It might seem a while ago that you received your offer of a place and, with the Coronavirus pandemic and lock down, lots of things have changed since then.

This email is to welcome you to the Wells Academy and offer some guidance, and hopefully reassurance, through the transition process.

Important Dates

The letter and packs attached inform you of our transition days are on Wednesday 1 July and Thursday 2 July.

It is unclear if schools will re-open in time for these dates. Currently we do not have any information about when this will be. If schools remain closed, these dates will be unavoidably cancelled. However, please be re-assured that we are committed to helping our Year 7 pupils settle in and keeping you informed. We will let you know about any updates, including how we will communicate with you, if there are any changes to current arrangements.


Here you will find all the appropriate transition documents. 

In other sections on our website you can also find information about our curriculum, our rules and expectations, the support and opportunities available to your child and much more.

Important Forms and Documents

There are some important forms and documents that will need completing and returning to us via post, online or on transition days. These forms will be sent out to you in the post to the address you stated on your child's application. Please ensure these are completed and returned or submitted online to The Wells Academy Campus no later than July 1st 2020

The forms can be found here, should you wish to complete them online:
