Year 7 Transition September 2023

At The Petchey Academy we understand that the transition from primary to secondary school can be both exciting and daunting for both parents and students alike.

Student wellbeing is paramountOur aim is to make that process as smooth as possible to ensure that students are happy and settled, and parents and carers have all the information they need and, more importantly, peace of mind.


We worked very hard to create a dedicated Year 7 Transition Website where new students and families can take a virtual tour, meet key members of staff, learn about how we do things at the academy. 

Parents and carers with questions regarding admissions for September 2023 should email  or call Lesley Samuel on: 0207 275 1500 /1502
