Normally, we would hold taster days for incoming Year 7 students in the summer term, which are designed to give them an idea of what daily life is like in Vale of York Academy.
At the current time it is looking very unlikely that we will be able to provide the existing model of transition, where students would spend time at Vale of York in July.
Once we receive further guidance from the government on how schools might be able to open we shall immediately begin planning arrangements for the new Year 7 intake. We will contact you again as soon as we have any further information.
We understand that some students find the move to secondary school more difficult than others, so we ensure that additional support is there for you during your move to Vale of York Academy.
Take a look at Mr Orr’s video below so that you can see what the school looks like and also hear from one of our current Year 7 students who was in your shoes this time last year.
Please see on parent pay and our academy website the most recent PE kit letter. This is a reminder of the kit that’s needed for September please. Please do get these over the summer if not already from the school shop. 🏃♂️ pic.twitter.com/dbRt…
