Y7 Transition

A warm welcome to all our new year 7 students and their families,

If Government restrictions allow an induction evening will be held at the Academy on Tuesday 29th June at 6pm for all parents and children coming to Merchants’ Academy. Attendance at this meeting is important as we will be providing you with some key documentation about your child’s new school.  Therefore, I would ask that if circumstances prevent you from attending, that you contact the Academy and let us know.  The evening will be a short introduction to the Academy and will provide you with the opportunity to meet with your child’s tutor and ask any questions that you may have.

Unfortunately due to current restrictions we will no longer be offering transition days to students due to start in September, more details to follow.
