At John Smeaton Academy we are committed to ensuring that your child has a positive experience of transition from primary education into secondary education.  We will work closely with your child’s primary school and yourselves to learn as much as we can about your child to make their transition as smooth as possible.  In addition, during the course of the academic year there will be many opportunities for you to ask questions and to see the experiences of students at the academy so that your child can feel confident when they start with us.

John Smeaton Academy’s Open Evening is on Thursday 7 October 2021.  If you are thinking about which secondary school might be right for your child’s next stage in education we would strongly encourage you to attend the open evening.  During the evening you will have the opportunity to meet the Principal and other key members of staff including the Assistant Principal with responsibility for Transition and the SENDCo.  Furthermore, our subject leaders will be available to speak to and your child will be able to circulate around the academy experiencing the subjects and collecting reward stamps.

We expect the demand for places at John Smeaton Academy to be far in excess of previous years given that the academy has recently joined The GORSE Academies Trust.  In order to secure your place at John Smeaton Academy it is important to complete an application form, put John Smeaton Academy as first preference and submit the form on time.  For further details regarding the Admissions process please click HERE.
