Year 6 Zone
Welcome to the Year 6 Transition Zone
This area of our website is especially for all of you Year 6s who are joining us in September.
Over the coming weeks we will be adding lots of information so you can get to know us more. There will also be videos to watch from key staff, your new form tutors and some of our students to help with your transition from a Year 6 primary student into a Year 7 Newhouse Academy student.
We know that it has been a really strange time for you, but we want to make sure that your experience of joining us here at Newhouse Academy is a truly excellent one.
Mrs Mears – Head of Year 7
Transition Day - Friday 9th July
Transition day for Year 6 children will be held on Friday 9th July.
This is their next chapter; the opportunity to see our fantastic building, meet our dedicated staff and make
lasting friendships. We cannot wait to meet all of our new starters – our class of 2026.
We have a fun-packed day lined up for your children with lesson taster sessions, time with form tutors and
social time to get to know others in their form group. We will adhere to all the public health guidance in
relation to Covid-19 and will have a risk assessment in place.
If you need to see a copy of the letter it is available HERE.
Our Funhouse Summer Academy will take place over 4 days in the summer holidays (22nd, 23rd, 26th and 27th July).
Almost all of our new Year 7s are coming to Summer Academy – it truly has something for everyone with a
roller disco, poetry workshops, a huge Year 7 Art installation in our atrium heart space, a humanities escape room,
sublime science and much, much more – did we mention the UV games room?
If you haven’t registered for a place yet there is still time – we have room for everyone, so get in touch and we can add your child to the list.
