Year 6 Transition
From Primary to Secondary School
Children joining our academy all have the opportunity to build relationships with us and learn about the next stages of their education prior to starting with us in September.
All Year 6 students are invited in to the academy for a taster day, where they will meet their form tutor and their peers for the next five years. We hope that this helps to settle some of the nerves that come with changing environments - especially since we understand how daunting it can be knowing you are the newest and youngest members of the family! With our taster day, our prospective students go home safe in the knowledge that they have walked the corridors of the academy, met their teacher and most importantly made friends.
At Oasis Academy Lister Park we are making huge steps to ensure students come through our door as a Year 7 student ready and prepared for secondary school life. We are currently working with a number of primary schools in the area with students from Year 6. The work we do is vital in making the transition from primary to secondary education and building their confidence.
We get in contact with primary schools to gather important information about your child's learning needs.
Welcoming You Into Year 7
We are delighted to welcome new Year 6 pupils into the family, even before you start with us!
At Oasis Academy Lister Park, not only do we want to help your child secure the best possible qualifications, but we also support them to develop their passions, talents and interests and grow to become even more valuable members of the community.
As we hope you will be aware, our attainment across the academy is improving and we are developing lots of new initiatives in order to provide an exciting and enriching curriculum offer. We are sure that your child will thrive by being part of this.
We are really excited about you starting with us in September and joining our Oasis family. Please keep updated by checking our website, Facebook posts and letters home for more information in the coming weeks.
