Transition can be a very exciting and daunting time for all of the families who are making the move from primary to secondary school. At Shenley Academy, we understand that moving from Year 6 to Year 7 is an exciting opportunity to develop social and academic confidence and build resilience. We have an extremely dedicated and hardworking team of staff who will guide your child through their years of education and recognise the unique talents and gifts each of our students have and allow them to fulfil their true identity.

We will continue to contact all parents and carers throughout the remainder of the Summer term to ensure that the transition is as smooth as it can possibly be.
