Partnerships with Primaries – Year 6 Transition

The students at The Hathaway Academy come from a range of primary schools across Thurrock. We believe that consistent contact with primary schools is of great importance in ensuring a smooth transition for the students. In order to do this effectively we offer a range of opportunities for Year 6 students and their parents/carers, including:

  • Year 6 Open House events; open mornings where students and parents/carers can see the Academy in operation and an open evening where students and parents/carers can meet the staff and visit departments
  • Tours for students and parents/carers once they have been offered a place
  • A Year 6 tea party where students and parents/carers can meet Year 7 students to find out about their experiences so far
  • Year 6 Transition Week where students spend a whole week in the Academy, meeting their tutor and tutor group, the Assistant Principal and the Progress Leader in charge of their faculty and attend a range of lessons
