Moving to a new school is exciting but it is also natural to feel some nervousness. We will do everything we can to help you feel settled and happy at PACA.
We have an extensive transition programme with primary schools so by the time students join PACA we hope you and your family will have been here many times for various activities and the school feels a familiar place.
At the end of year 6 there is an intensive transition programme where teachers from PACA get to know the students who are joining in Year 7 and students come into schools for tours, talks and activities to help you know what to expect before the summer holiday starts.
At the beginning of the school year the academy opens especially just for new students in Year 7 and the Sixth Form so you have a couple of days to find your way round and settle down before the rest of the students return.
The transition programme is coordinated by our Transition Manager, Liz I’Anson, so if you have any questions before you start please contact her on L.I’Anson@paca.uk.com.
Once you start you will no doubt still have some questions so please ask your tutor who will be able to help you or point you in the right direction.
