Samuel Whitbread Academy


Making the journey easy

We at Samuel Whitbread Academy, aim to make the transition from middle to upper school as seamless and hassle-free as possible. We work closely with middle schools to introduce the subject of transition early, in order that all parties are as informed and prepared as possible. We understand that the moving to a new school may be daunting, particularly in light of such huge change the children have experienced in the last year. Our aim is to take all opportunities available to us within guidance to support this step.

We will be contacting on a number of occasions between March and July. All documents can also be found below.  A virtual tour of our school can be found here.

To complete the new starter form for your child, please fill in this google form.
