Primary Transition

We take the process of transition from primary school to our Academy very seriously. Long before Year 6 students join us in the Summer term prior to their commencement at BA, we are at work in our wider community, hosting events and working in primary schools. 

One of the events we host is the annual Bexley Primary Schools Poetry Competition each November and we receive huge amounts of submissions with the ceremonies being attended by The Worshipful Mayor of the London Borough of Bexley. 

Schools also visit us to use our facilities and make use of our teaching expertise, particularly in Maths & Science and the Creative Arts.

We are continually developing the support we provide to primary schools "at their place." A rapidly growing area relates to things of a technological nature and in particular online safety. This work can be seen in class with students, and behind the scenes running training sessions for staff, providing advice upon request for senior leaders, headteachers and governors, and tailoring resources. 

We are also make use of our long-running established position with PE and Sports.
