Year 6 Transition 2023
Welcome to Nottingham Girls' Academy
We are delighted your child will be joining the Nottingham Girls' Academy in September and we look forward to working with you and her over the next seven years of her education and development.
We are extremely proud of our students and the progress they make in our academy. A major strength of our work is how effectively we plan to ensure that all students achieve their full potential whilst here. It is therefore important to us that your child feels happy and reassured about the transition to the Nottingham Girls’ Academy and looks forward to starting with us in September.
Information about Nottingham Girls' Academy
Using the links in this section of our website, you will be able to find some initial information about transport to Nottingham Girls' Academy, attendance expectations and Uniform expectations.
In other sections on our website you can also find information about our curriculum, our rules and expectations, the support and opportunities that will be available to your child and much more.
It can be difficult to take in all the information in one go, so please take your time and don't hesitate to get in touch if the information provided does not answer your questions.
We very much hope you enjoy reading about our school and how we aim to support your daughter's development and success.
The links in this section will provide further information particularly relevant to pupils joining us in Year 6.
If you have any further queries about Transition, please use our contact form:
To help us with the transition process we would appreciate it if you could provide us with some information about your child (such as emergency contact details, photo consent, biometric consent, etc)
You can access the forms we would like you to complete on the Student Details and Consent Forms page.
Following two years of not being able to hold face-to-face transition days for our pupils, we are expecting to be able to welcome our new pupils to the school on Tuesday 4 July and Wednesday 5 July 2023 for transition visits.
We will be in touch closer to the time to provide you with the details for these days, but they will be a fantastic opportunity for your children to start getting to know our school site, some of our teachers and, most importantly, start making some new friends.
We have children approximately 50 different primary schools coming in September, so if your child is the only person coming from their primary school please reassure them that they will not be in the only one and that the transition days will be designed to help them meet new people ahead of their start in September.
Transition Evening for parents/carers - Tuesday 4 July
The Transition evening for parents/carers will now be held on Tuesday 4 July 2023 at 5:30pm to 6:30pm.
We will also start to contact the parents of students who we feel would benefit from a little extra support through transition. We will invite some pupils in for some additional visits to try and minimise the anxiety associated with moving schools.
