Year 6 Transition

Welcome to The Oldham Academy North!

We are delighted that you are joining us in September and we can’t wait to meet you. We understand moving from Primary School to Secondary School can be an exciting but anxious time for both students and parents and we are committed to ensuring the transition is as smooth as possible for all students.

We have put together a range of resources and events to help you get to know the academy and introduce you to key members of staff who are here to support you through your transition.

Transition Days

We are delighted to be able to welcome our future Year 7s into the academy for a series of transition days. These will be held on Wednesday 30th June, Thursday 1st July and Friday 2nd July for vulnerable students, 8:45am – 2:45pm. This will be a chance to explore the academy, meet other students starting with you in September as well as the staff who will be supporting you. More details to follow!

Summer School

We will be holding our annual summer school from Monday 19th July – Friday 23rd July 9:15am – 12pm (1:30pm finish on the Friday) and all our future Year 7s are invited! This is a great chance to make new friends and get to know the academy and staff during fun -filled days, before you start school in September. All students will be offered a free school dinner. Further details and how to sign up will be distributed during the transition days.
