Year 6-7 Transition week
The programme at The Taunton Academy will just be for students joining us in September, it will provide an additional opportunity for students to experience the school site, make new friends and build confidence and skills for moving to secondary school. There is a cost for the week. If financial support is needed for ‘The Big Step’ you may be eligible for a grant from Bishop Fox’s Educational Foundation Bishop Fox’s Educational Foundation (bfef.org.uk) If applying, the deadline is Friday 27th May.
We understand not all students will be able to attend this week for a variety of reasons, but we hope all students will be able to attend our transition days in July and we very much look forward to meeting and welcoming our new year group.
