Parents and Carers
Covid 19 Update – Due to the current situation regarding schools, our Year 6 into year 7 transition will be running differently. Please see the Parent letter below for more information on transition. We realise this is a difficult time and you may have a range of questions which we hope to have answered in our FAQs document below. Please keep checking this page for more updates around transition and we hope to meet you soon!
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
