Transition from Year 6 to Year 7

What about transition?
Transition welcome


We want to take this opportunity to introduce ourselves and welcome you to Quarrydale Academy. As the ‘Transition Team’ we work with your primary teachers, gathering information to make your transition as easy and smooth for you as possible, supporting you throughout year 7.

Transition is very important to us and we realise that for many of you it will be a worrying time, but with the current situation in the country, our normal arrangements will understandably change. We will do our best to accommodate our new pupils to the best of our ability and be reassured that we will be here to support not only students but their parents and carers too.

We will be in touch as soon as possible with more help and advice but in the meantime please check our website regularly for general information and updates about the school.

Thank you for choosing us, we will strive to give all our students the best education possible.

We look forward to seeing you all soon.


What about student rewards?

We use "E-Praise" to allow students to earn and spend reward points.
Parents can also look at the day to day life of their child including rewards, demerits and interventions.
