Joining Us in Year 7

Transition from Primary to Secondary

One of the biggest challenges that any student faces during their academic career is the transfer from primary to secondary school.  We are confident that we have an excellent transition programme to ensure that students settle in quickly and enjoy their first few weeks at Capital City Academy.  This includes close relationships with our feeder primary schools; opportunities for students to visit the Academy several times, for instance to watch school productions or take part in the community clubs and classes; a FREE summer school and an effective induction process to familiarise students and families with the Academy before and after their arrival.

If you have any queries about the transition programme please contact Gavin Kensit.
