New Year 7 - September 2022 start

Hello and welcome to the new Year 7 section of the website.

This space is for you as a family to have in one place all of the information that you will need to know in order to be ready to start at Orchards Academy. As well as having copies of the letters and documents that we send home to you, there will also be other items of interest that include clips and related articles that will help you get ready at home for life in Year 7.

Please keep checking in regularly to ensure that you keep up to date and don't miss anything!

We are looking forward to working with you very soon.

We have added a link to a film from Young Minds called Find Your Feet: Transition to Secondary School.

This film shows Year 6 children and their concerns, with input from current Year 7 students and how they felt and dealt with similar worries, which will hopefully calm any anxieties that you may have.
