Year 6 Transition

Welcome to Folkestone Academy! 


Learning is at the heart of everything we do at Folkestone Academy and we are proud you are becoming part of our learning community.

We appreciate this is a time of change for you and over the coming months I will be working closely with colleagues and our feeder primary schools to ensure transition is as effective as possible.

Exceptional Pastoral care will support you and your son / daughter through this transition time. When they join us they will be assigned to a House who will support, guide and encourage them through their learning journey.

Transition begins in March. Alongside your welcome letter you will notice the dates we have assigned to each aspect of the induction programme and in addition to this we will be visiting the primary schools to meet the students and yourselves.  We have two days for transition where students will be immersed in learning and activities, and meet the staff who will be working closely with them throughout their time with us.

In anticipation of all the questions you may have, we have created this section of the website just for you: Year 6 students, parents and carers. These pages are designed to share with you important information you need, introduce you to some of our staff and students and share with you some of the opportunities available to you when at Folkestone Academy.

We are excited that you will be joining us in September for the next stage of your son / daughter’s learning journey and look forward to working alongside you throughout your time with us. 

We are looking forward to welcoming you into our community at the Academy and working alongside you throughout your time with us.
