New Year 7 Parent Information

Year 6 into year 7 students

Dear New Parents/Carers for our cohort 2019/20,

We are very excited to be finalising an information pack which will be sent to yourselves in due course. This will include lots of key information to support you with the transition to Marlborough.

Our website page will be updated with this information once this has all been finalised.

Year 7 Students - 2019
 

A warm welcome from The Marlborough Science Academy to those students who will be joining us in September 2019. I hope that the years you will spend here will be both happy and memorable. It is my ambition that every student leaves here as a confident, successful, well rounded young person and your support in this is invaluable.

We hope you will find this webpage useful as we update this page with useful information regarding your son or daughter's transition from primary to secondary.

Once your child has started with us please refer to the Year 7 link on the Students page.

The move to secondary school is a very important step in the life of every young person. It is also an exciting step but one that can be confusing and rather overwhelming at times. We aim to make the transition as smooth and enjoyable as possibly and our track record in settling students in quickly is recognised as being exemplary and well-considered.

Director of Learning and Transition
