At Colonel Frank Seely Academy we work very hard to ensure Year 7 pupils make a smooth and positive transition to secondary school life.
We work closely with primary schools to ensure we get to know each child and to understand their academic and social needs and abilities. We visit every prospective pupil in their primary school before invited them to three other events at our school.
This personal and proactive approach ensures teaching is responsive and tailored to the individual. In Year 7, with tutor groups housed in our Lower School area, there is a very strong focus on pastoral care which enables form tutors to forge strong relationships with our new pupils.
Our Induction evening held in July before our pupils start at Colonel Frank Seely Academy and during the first three weeks of the new term, help to establish the crucial two-way partnership between home and school.
