Year 6 Transition

If you’re a Year 6 pupil (parent/carer) joining us in September 2021,  this is the page for you!

We’ll use this page to keep you updated throughout your transition to Horbury Academy….Looking forward to meeting you already!

Year 6 Parent Information Evening

In case you missed it, here’s the recording of our Parent Information Evening for our September 2021 intake, designed to support you through your child’s transition to Horbury Academy.

Virtual Tour of our Academy

Watch our film below to discover some of the important places in our academy and get to know a little bit about what kind of things go on. Oh and keep one eye open for a VIP round these parts – the Horbury Bear, who clearly likes being the centre of attention, popping up in every room!

​​​‘Talking Heads’

To complement our virtual tour, we’ve produced a series of ‘talking heads’ clips, to introduce our new intake to key staff and subjects, which you can find here.

We hope that by familiarising you with our staff, subjects and academy, it will help with any feelings of unease you may experience before September.

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.
