The Marlborough Science Academy


WELCOME TO The Marlborough Science Academy – your new school

Dear Year 6 Student,

We are delighted that you have chosen The Marlborough Science Academy as your Secondary School for September 2024. We are looking forward to welcoming you to our school and helping you reach your full potential.

We understand that starting secondary school can be a very exciting yet also a daunting experience for many students.  Our staff understand this and will work closely with your primary schools over the next few months to make your transition into our school as easy as possible.

Please take the time to look at our website and talk to current students, so you can begin to get a sense of your new school and what it will be like when you start with us in September. We will update our website regularly with new information and email your parents/carers every time this happens.

We will soon be in discussions with your Primary schools to find out more about you and what we can do to support you through your Transition to Secondary School. Here at The Marlborough Science Academy, we will do everything we can to ensure that your move to secondary school is a positive and enjoyable experience.

You can also prepare yourself for transition by taking a look at BBC Bitesize who have put together lots of information and videos about starting Secondary School. The series offers practical advice and emotional support for students and parents/carers to help take the stress out of taking the next big step.
