Year 6 Transition

I am pleased to be able to welcome you to the Horbury Academy Transition page. My name is Mr Care and I liaise with all the local primary schools and coordinate the smooth transfer and transition of students to Horbury Academy.

We have lots of activities and experiences planned throughout the year for students at local primary schools. Furthermore, we are proud of the meetings, activities and events we have planned to make sure that all students settle in at Horbury Academy when they move up from Primary School.


Here is a sample of some of the transition activities that we organise at Horbury Academy:

  1. Open Evening
  2. Pyramid sports events for Years 1-6
  3. Christmas show for local primaries at Horbury Academy
  4. Horbury International Primary Bazaar
  5. Year 5 Taster Day
  6. Year 6 Personal Meetings at Horbury Academy
  7. Pyramid music day at Horbury Academy
  8. Year 6 Taster Day at Horbury Academy
  9. Year 6 Transition Welcome Evening at Horbury Academy
  10. Science primary workshops
  11. Year 7 ‘Meet the Tutor’ Evening
  12. Year 7 Curriculum Information Evening

You can also access key forms and documents on this page including the Horbury Academy Holiday Homework that will be set for all our new Year 7 students to be completed over the summer holidays.

I hope that you find the information on this page of the website useful. If you have any ideas for ways we can make it better or any questions about Horbury Academy then just let us know! You can do this by emailing me on
