Year 6 Transition Information

National Offer Day is Coming

On March 1st 2021 you will find out if your child has been offered a place at Kettering Science Academy for September 2021 entry into Year 7.  

As we write this, KSA is currently open for key worker and vulnerable students with the majority of students accessing online live lessons and remote learning opportunities. Like every school in the country, we can’t wait to have our students back in our school!

We want you to find out as much as possible about student life at KSA and the KSA community so that your child and family has a successful transition to secondary school. We hope that you will be able to visit us in person before starting with us in September – watch this space!

The transition from primary to secondary school is an exciting time and full of challenges and experiences for both parents/carers and children. We work very hard to ensure maximum success for all our students so they are ready for the challenges of secondary school, enjoying new friendships and the new opportunities secondary school brings. It can also be a worrying time and we have an excellent pastoral system to help. We also work closely with the primary schools and Year 6 teachers to ensure that we receive all the required information about our new students.

Over the next seven years we guarantee your child a first-rate education. At KSA we provide opportunities for both academic and personal development. There is much to recommend KSA including:

  • Pupils speak warmly about their ‘supportive teachers’.
  • The learning environment for pupils promotes their learning well. Pupils respect their school.
  • Pupils believe that many of their teachers ‘have a heart’. This helps them to feel safe. If problems occur, pupils are confident that their teachers will sort it out quickly.
  • Pupils value the ‘Hub’ as a place of assistance and care.
  • Pupils take advantage of the wide range of after-school experiences on offer. They appreciate the opportunity to learn new things and visit new places.
  • The learning environment for pupils promotes their learning well. Pupils respect their school.
  • Sixth form students are positive role models to the younger pupils. They are a credit to the school
  • The sixth form have been recognised nationally by receiving a top award for its outstanding KS5 results by the SSAT

Please keep a look out for those allocation letters arriving soon, return the information packs as soon as possible and remember to keep checking this page as we update it regularly.
