Transition from Primary School
At Sandhill View Academy we know that the transition from primary to secondary school is an extremely important time for students but by working together with our local primary schools, we hope yo make the process as fun and as simple as possible for everyone involved. For more information on everything we do, please see below.
What We Do to Support Transition
We have an extensive programme of transition events in place for Year 5 and 6 students, to help make their transition to secondary school as smooth as possible. For more information on our transition programme, toggle the Transition Programme box below.

The Transition Process
The process begins at our Academy Open Evenings in September. We throw open our doors to parents and pupils to get a taste of what Sandhill View has to offer, try fun learning activities, meet our current students and teachers and soak up our school atmosphere.
Parents then select their school preference via a form or online before the school admissions deadline in October.
Year 6 pupils will then be offered the chance to take part in our transitions events, giving them the opportunity to learn about our school and what to expect when they start in September.
After Easter we will write to all of our prospective parents, welcoming you to our school and confirming the details of the transition process. This cumulates in our Year 7 welcome evening where students and parents will enrol into our school, receive more information about our curriculum along with a welcome pack and have a chance to meet their form tutors and order uniforms for September.
Students will then complete transition into Year 7 in September when they start their secondary school life at Sandhill View Academy.
