Y6/7 Transition 2020


Welcome to Year 6 parents, carers and students who will be joining Darton Academy in September 2020. This page is designed to keep you informed about our transition process over the academic year.

Starting at secondary school can be an exciting yet nervous time for Year 7 learners as well as for parents/carers. Our aim is to make the transition from primary to secondary a smooth and positive experience for everyone.  It is normally around this time that we would begin our transition process for Year 7 in Darton Academy. As this is not currently possible we have decided to begin in slightly a different way and have designed a project for the year 6 pupils to complete.  See the transition bridging page for more details on this.

To support you and your child with transition this year (2020) please see the transition information pages for more detail including a virtual school tour.
