Making the move from primary to secondary school can be incredibly daunting for new students of all abilities. Here at Pool Academy we work hard to ensure it is a smooth process. Our work begins long before the students join us in Year 7.


We have built strong links with local primary schools. Students from years three to six have regular opportunities to work with us. Parents and carers also have different opportunities to visit us and meet form tutors, as well as members of the pastoral and leadership teams.

We also make time to talk to our primary colleagues and new students before they join us, allowing us to meet the needs of our students individually. By getting to know our students before they join us we understand how to tailor our curriculum for every student including the Most Able. Visit the Transition area of our website for more information.
