Samuel Whitbread Academy

Year 9 Transition - September 2024

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 moving to a new school may be daunting, particularly in light of such huge change the children have experienced in the last year few years. Our aim is to take all opportunities available to us within guidance to support this step.

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

The new starter form for students enroling Year 9 September 2024 will be available for children who have a place confirmed in March 2024. You will receive the new start form directly via the email you provided on your CBC application form.

The attachments below are an example of the information Samuel Whitbread Academy will provide you for students throughout our transition process.
