Year 6 Information Event

We were delighted to welcome over 100 families to our recent Transition Information Events.  On Thursday 7th March visitors heard from members of the Leadership Team and Student Ambassadors including a current Year 7 student about our Transition Programme and being a student at The Halley Academy.

On 14th March we invited families to tour the academy and get a real feel for our day to day teaching and learning.  One parent said The Halley Academy 'was one of the quietest secondary schools she'd visited'.

We had some wonderfully positive feedback from both events:

'When I found out we had been allocated The Halley Academy, I had some reservations. However the efficiency with which we were invited in to meet key staff following National Offer Day reassured me. I found the event to be very informative and professional and we were able to take away important literature to read in our own time'.

'The Halley Academy was not our first choice for our daughter's secondary school but as soon as we arrived at the event, we realised that things had changed at the academy. The event was professional and detailed the very comprehensive transition programme offered at The Halley Academy. We were especially pleased to hear about the free summer transition HARmony Camp, which is designed and led by student leaders at the academy. In addition, we heard about the transition experiences of a current Year 7 student; this especially reassured my daughter.'
