Bridgwater College Academy

Transition into Year 7

 Dear Year 6 Families

 A very warm welcome to Bridgwater College Academy!   

In the Bridgwater College Academy community everything matters, at all times and this includes our specific and targeted transition programme.  Moving to secondary school is a huge step in a young person’s life, but we firmly believe that this should not be a big leap into a whole new world.  It is a priority for us that any new students joining the school feel supported, cared for and able to succeed.

At Bridgwater College Academy we have an exceptional team of staff who are waiting to provide your children with an inspiring and supportive learning environment, where high expectations, resilience, responsibility and respect are the foundations from which your child can realise his/her full potential. 

As we prepare for another successful transition, please keep regularly checking this section of the website over the next month, where you will find important information and updates regarding our 2024 transition programme.   

We are very much looking forward to working closely with you and your child over the next few months, and to the beginning of a fantastic partnership that will continue over the next five years. 

Yours faithfully

Chris Wade
