Year 6 into 7 – Transition 2020




I would like to introduce myself to you, I am your Principal, Mrs. Wilson. I am very much looking forward to meeting you in September. I would have thoroughly enjoyed showing you around the Academy in July but we cannot at the moment. When you do come to us, you will have lots of people around to help you get used to your new school. There will be lots of new things for you to try, but you will enjoy learning them with your friends and new students from other schools.

I know you are working hard on the lessons you have been set by your primary school teachers, this work will help you when you join us. One of my favourite things is reading, I am looking forward to talking to you about what you have been reading and your favourite books, so try and read as much as possible before September.

I wish you a very happy summer holiday and cannot wait to meet you in the new term.

I am Miss Webster, Head of Year 7, and I would like to officially welcome you all to Ormiston Sudbury Academy.

I understand that transition can be an anxious time for some of you, however, it is also a very exciting one.  You will learn new skills and develop as individuals during your time at the Academy.  As long as you embrace this new journey through secondary education, do your best and work hard, opportunities will open for you.  Your confidence will grow and we will support you with your wellbeing and your academic progress.

You may need to set yourself some personal goals at the start of Year 7, to ensure you are successful during your time at the Academy.  You will be supported to meet your goals in tutor time, in lessons and in any extra-curricular activities you decide to take part in. Hard work in and out of the classroom will always pay off and we will encourage you to challenge yourself every day.

I am confident you will settle quickly into our community and make lots of new friends.  So, please embrace this new adventure, and remember to ask for help if you need it – we have a fantastic team of staff at OSA, all waiting to support you, every step of the way.

I look forward to meeting you all very soon.
