Transition News!

On 12th June, Miss Arksey took 4 of our year 8 Leesbrookers to primary school, Hey-with-Zion to deliver a German taster session with year 5 classes. The students were outstanding and were brilliant role models for the year 5s. The feedback from both class teachers was extremely positive and the children had a fabulous time!


Parent, Carer and Student Information

As an Academy, our pledge is to support all year 6 students to ensure they make an excellent start at Leesbrook. In the lead up to September, there are going to be some exciting updates and activities to ensure your transition from year 6 to year 7 is successful. Please keep checking our website, and our Facebook and Twitter accounts, for updates.

As a new Leesbrooker, you will have the opportunity to build relationships with us and learn about the next stage of your education prior to starting with us in September. Our new students will be invited to a Transition Day(s) where they will meet their Family Group Leader (form tutor) and class teachers for the first time.  Parents and carers will also be invited to our Transition Parents’ Meeting (held in the summer term), which is a great opportunity to ask lots of questions!

All year 6 students will be welcomed to our amazing Academy building on Roxbury Avenue; please take a look at our interactive video above for a sneak preview! Our state of the art building which only opened in 2020, is an outstanding learning environment for our Leesbrookers; one which we are extremely proud of.

To help prepare students for their amazing journey ahead, they will be invited to the Academy for a Transition Day, as mentioned above, where they will meet their peers for the next five years. We are also planning our Summer Academy to further support selected students with their transition. We will be contacting primary schools to find out about each individual student.

We hope that this helps settle some of the nerves – they are completely natural! We know that it can be daunting to be the newest and youngest members of the family! After our transition day, our excited new Leesbrookers always go home safe in the knowledge that they have walked the corridors of the Academy, met their teachers and most importantly made friends.  

It is our priority to help you with this change, therefore we welcome any feedback or questions from parents and carers.

If you have a query relating to your child’s transition to Leesbrook, we would love to hear from you. Please email us and we will be happy to help.
