Welcome to the Ipswich Academy Year 6 to Year 7 Transition Hub

At Ipswich Academy, we strive for a seamless transition from primary to secondary school. Whilst the Academy has well-established links to its feeder primary schools, it also welcomes children from out of catchment each academic year. We realise that the move from one school to another can be a stressful time for parents, carers and students alike, as habitual routines are replaced by new ones and familiar faces exchanged for what might, at first, appear to be strangers.

This area of our school website has been designed to provide our new parents and carers with all of the information that you might need for the Year 6 to 7 transition. We also hope that Year 6 students will be able to look at the links from it with their parents or carers and friends before joining us in September. We believe that doing this will promote discussion about the new school year and allay some of the anxieties about the change ahead.
