Year 6 Transition

Welcome to The Folkestone Academy! 


Transitioning from primary to secondary school is one of the most important and exciting changes during a child’s life. Our aim is to make it as smooth as possible by working closely with our feeder primary schools, the students and their families to minimise anxiety about the change.

In addition to this we offer a programme of induction days and activities which offer the students an opportunity to experience a day in the life of the Academy and meet the staff who will be working closely with them throughout their time with us.

In anticipation of all the questions you may have, we have created this section of the website just for you: Year 6 students, parents and carers. These pages are designed to provide you with some of the information you need, to introduce you to some of our staff and students and share with you some of the opportunities available to you when at the Academy.

We are looking forward to welcoming you into our community at the Academy and working alongside you throughout your time with us.
