Our aims

  • To reassure Year 6 students about their transition to The Marlborough Science Academy and to prepare them for Secondary life
  • To support parents and provide them with all the information they need throughout the transition process
  • To gather relevant information from all our feeder primary schools about each student joining The Marlborough Science Academy in September.

Here at Marlborough, we feel it is imperative that Year 6 students have a positive move into Year 7. It is vital that they feel confident and equipped to make the transition into Marlborough at the start of the academic year.

We feel that in order to achieve a positive transition, parents should be fully informed about the process; therefore, we have put together a timetable of the process below.
