Gloucester Academy

Transition Day

CHANGED DATE : Thursday 7th of July 2022

9:00am - 2:30pm

Dear Class of 2027 Families

I hope that your child is looking forward to starting the next phase of their education at Gloucester Academy in September of this year.  Transition day is a really important and exciting day for your child to experience the day in the life of a year 7 student here at Gloucester Academy.  We have changed our Transition Day from the 5th July to the 7th of July 2022  to support our primary colleagues.

Your child will have the opportunity to spend the day at Gloucester Academy taking part in various lessons and becoming accustomed to the Gloucester Academy culture and environment.  Your child will be expected to arrive in their primary school uniform and can bring a rucksack if they wish to.

The day will comprise of;

  • 9:00 - 9:15am - Gates open and students arrive via Norbury Avenue - not the main gates on Painswick Road.  We  will continue to use these gates for Year 7 during the first term in September 2022.
  • 9:20am -  Students attend line up and begin their day
  • 1:55 - 2:30pm - Parents arrive for collection.  Students will be dismissed via Norbury Avenue and the opportunity to meet staff and make appointments with our Safeguarding lead and SENDCO.

Throughout the day all food will be provided, however if you wish for your child to have a packed lunch then please provide this on the day.  We encourage students to bring a water bottle and a healthy snack, for example a cereal bar, or fruit for break time.  We ask that you contact Miss Magri by Friday 1st July 2022 on 01452 428800 or tmagri@gloucesteracademy.co.uk with details of any special dietary requirements, medical conditions or allergies that we should be aware of.

During the morning from 9:00 - 9:20am you will have the opportunity to collect any further registration forms or September documentation from the main reception.

A reminder that Gloucester Academy uniform is provided by Monkhouse, you can visit the website HERE and visit the store based on Northgate street, Gloucester, GL1 2AA.  Order forms will be provided for you to complete as well as being able to allow your child to try on items for sizing.

Transition day is a wonderful opportunity for your child to meet their Achievement Leader, other staff and the other students in their year group.  We cannot wait to meet you on Tuesday 5th of July 2022 when your child begins the climb of their own personal mountain to the very best university and profession.

Yours faithfully

Miss Exton

Assistant Headteacher
