Dear Sir/Madam

Subject: Strood Academy – Year 6 transition 

It was a pleasure to welcome so many of you to Strood Academy for our welcome event yesterday.  We are proud to be the school of choice and are privileged to welcome you to our vibrant and supportive community.

We are committed to ensuring a smooth and successful transition for your child and we believe it is vital to maintain early relationships with both parents and students.

To achieve this, we are planning a series of weekly sessions along with further open mornings in June and July. This is in addition to the full transition day on Thursday 4th July. We believe this is a fantastic opportunity to alleviate any anxieties your child/ren may have about starting secondary school and to foster a positive relationship between our school.

In the below table you will find all the events that we are running at the academy to support your child’s transition.

We will be running a series of further open mornings in June, inviting parents and students to our successful academy giving you an opportunity to have an insight into the day to day structure of the school.

Please fill in the form attached here  to indicate what dates/sessions you would like to attend. Please could we ask you to sign up 48 hours prior to the event so we can prepare effectively. If you would like to receive our weekly bulletin please confirm this on the form as well.

We will write to you with further details regarding our transition day on Thursday 4th July as well as our summer school.
