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 all local schools working with them from early in KS2 to provide a range of opportunities designed to ease with process of change.
These experiences include:
In addition a formal offer for all includes:
We aim to provide the best individual transition experience possible and have 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) 561 3680.
Biddick is a popular and oversubscribed Academy, mainly serving the south of Washington, with around 1100 students on roll. We make a commitment to staffing and as a result we have one of the lowest teacher pupil ratios in the area.
Most of our students have English as a first language; the number of pupils with learning disabilities and the proportion entitled to free school meals are below average.
Ofsted judged us to be a good school with some outstanding qualities and parents were ‘overwhelmingly positive about the education and care that their children receive’.
