At Sharnbrook Academy, we strive to make our new students feel confident about the transition to secondary school.  We understand the importance of making them feel welcome and ensure that they are a valued part of the school community. 

We work closely with all sending primary schools to ensure that we have a detailed understanding of the needs of all students joining us. 

The year 7 curriculum is broad and balanced, giving our year 7 students the experience of specialist lessons in specialist facilities.

Our transition programme is designed to help students settle in quickly, start to make new friends and be excited about the prospect of joining Sharnbrook Academy.  In the summer term before starting Sharnbrook, students joining us on ‘fact-finding missions’ to find out about the school and report back to their peers.  In addition, all students will join us for two days of induction where they will experience a wide range of activities in readiness for the September start.

This year our year 7 induction days are on Tuesday 9th and Wednesday 10th July 2019 from 8:30am-3:15pm each day.

In addition, we host a new parents’ information evening to afford parents the opportunity to find out more about the school, its working and organisation and the two-day induction.  This will be held on Thursday, 4th July at 7:00pm in the main hall, we look forward to seeing you there.

Below are letters relating to transport as well as the induction days.  These should be read by both parents/carers and students.

We hope all students are excited about joining Sharnbrook Academy and look forward to welcoming them on their induction days.
