New Year 7 Information

Information useful to new students starting in September

Welcome to Four Dwellings Academy!

As your Year 6 child enters their final term at primary school we understand that they will be feeling a mixture of excitement and apprehension at starting secondary school with us in September. We likewise recognise that many parents or carers will also be feeling the same!

To ease the move to our Academy we are offering a comprehensive package of ‘transition’ events to allow you and your child to experience a taste of what secondary school life will be like, experience curriculum lessons, meet their new form tutor, make new friends and meet our skilled and wonderful staff.
