Biddick Academy - Transition



Key Dates

New Intake Parent Evening - Monday 25th June

Transition Days for Year 6 students - Tuesday 26th June -  Friday 29th June


Biddick Academy works hard with Schools to plan transition opportunities that support every individual student on their journey to starting school in Year 7. We work collaboratively with our partner schools, from early in KS2 to provide a range of opportunities designed to ease the process of change.

These experiences include:

  • Digital art master classes
  • Science workshops
  • Thinking Skill Challenge days
  • ICT/Robotics programme
  • Ready Steady Cook
  • Sporting Competitions and Festivals
  • School Performances

In addition a formal offer for all includes:

  • Early Transition opportunities for the anxious/more vulnerable students
  • A full transition week to get to know tutors and form classes
  • Open Evenings
  • New intake evenings for parents to meet staff/tutors

We aim to provide the best individual transition experience possible and have a team of staff who are continuing to develop this programme. For any further information on what transition may look like for your child please contact Mr J. Houghton at school on (0191) 511 1600.
