Transition 2020 FAQs (Horbury)

We have lots of activities and experiences planned throughout the year for students at local primary schools. Furthermore, we are proud of the meetings, activities and events we have planned to make sure that all students settle in at Horbury Academy when they move up from Primary School.

Here is a sample of some of the transition activities that we organise at Horbury Academy:

  • Open Evening
  • Pyramid sports events for Years 1-6
  • Year 5 Taster Day
  • Pyramid music day at Horbury Academy
  • Year 6 Taster Day at Horbury Academy
  • Year 6 Transition Welcome Evening at Horbury Academy
  • Year 7 ‘Settling In’ Parent’s Evening

You can also access key forms and documents on this page including the Horbury Academy Holiday Homework that will be set for all our new Year 7 students to be completed over the summer holidays.

I hope that you find the information on this page of the website useful. If you have any ideas for ways we can make it better or any questions about Horbury Academy then just let us know! You can do this by emailing me on

The Accord Multi Academy Trust is an educational charity established in September 2016 that is currently made up of four academies who were the founding members of the Trust. In September 2016 Horbury Academy and Ossett Academy & Sixth Form College came together, moving away from their stand-alone Trust status and were joined in December 2016 by Horbury Primary Academy and Middlestown Primary Academy.

The overarching vision for the Trust is to work in one ‘Accord – celebrating the differences of each academy through strong collaboration in order to inspire all members of our learning community to be the best that they can be.
