Starting secondary school is a big step for your child. In most instances, they will be moving from being the oldest in a small school to the youngest in a much bigger school. Some children will be moving with friends and classmates from primary school; others may not know anyone in their new school. For all children, there will be a lot to take in and to learn, particularly in the first few weeks.
We want all students who choose Vale of York Academy School to get used to their new routines and school organisation with great ease; develop new friendships and improve their self-esteem and confidence. In order to prepare them for this transition process, we have an intensive programme in place throughout year 5 and year 6, in conjunction with our primary feeder schools.
We have also devised a full programme of Primary Taster events which happen throughout the year, so that your child can get a really good feel for Vale of Academy. Take a look at the Primary taster menu 2018-19
