Whilst we find ourselves in very different circumstances, one thing has not changed. That is the importance of young people transitioning through to the next stage of their education. The excitement, the anxieties, the challenges, the thrills, all still exist and we are absolutely determined to meet any challenges head on and give your child the best possible transition experience at this time.

As you are aware, at this time of year we are planning opportunities for students to meet their new classmates, meet their new teachers and experience Watling Academy ‘lessons’. We will also have additional transition activities for students with additional needs.
