We work hard to give all new students a smooth and positive transition to secondary school life, and many of your children will already have been involved in taster days, summer schools and activities at Haywood while at primary school. A quality programme for which we have a regional reputation. 

Our transition programme is aimed at making your child feel at ease with their move to a secondary school environment. We want your child to feel confident and excited about coming to join us here at Haywood Academy.

With our team of dedicated staff working closely with primary schools, we get to know our students well by understanding their individual needs and abilities.

This proactive approach to learning ensures our teaching is tailored to the individual from the very start of their school journey, while parents are invited to the Academy during the first term to ensure that crucial partnership between home and school is established.

Haywood Academy is also a member of the City Learning Trust.
