Transition calendar

Dates for your diary

Thursday 27 June 2024 (09:00 – 14:40) : Supported Transition Day

This year we have a number of students who are joining us from non-feeder primary schools, and as such may be the only student from their current primary school moving to Manor CE Academy. We recognise that this adds another level of anxiety to the whole process, and want to help.

With this in mind, we are holding an additional event, which will allow those new students who are coming from non-feeder primaries, to meet each other prior to the official transition day. By doing this we hope that to help facilitate the formation of new friendships, and ensure that there is a familiar face when all of our new students come together on 03 July. We would also like to invite those students with additional needs or difficulties to attend this preparation day.

Tuesday 02 July 2024 (17:30 – 19:30) : Transition Evening 

Parents and students are invited to attend school to hear a presentation from Mr Cairns and Mr Stimpson (Head of Yr7).  They will also have the opportunity to meet their tutors.

Wednesday 03 July 2024 : Transition Day

This is the citywide transition event. All Year 6 students within the City of York are given the opportunity to spend a day in their allocated secondary school. At Manor CE Academy this day is packed with activities that focus on primarily on fostering positive relationships, and developing confidence.

Thursday 04 July 2024 : Additional Transition Day

This year, in addition to the citywide transition event, we are holding a second transition day. During this time, our new Year 7s will follow a timetable of lessons in the same way as our existing students. They will undertake familiarisation activities – both of the building, routines and expectations. It is a fantastic opportunity to iron out all of the creases, and alleviate some of those anxieties, before starting in September.
