When Year 6 pupils leave their primary schools, they feel successful; they have been the big fish, albeit in a relatively small pond. Starting secondary school can therefore be a worrying time: endless corridors, stairs, sixth formers twice their height, books, folders, maps, long days… At Lincoln Castle Academy, we believe the transition into
Year 7 should be an exciting time.
With care and guidance, our new Year 7 students make the transition successfully. Taster days alongside our Year 7 Summer School, allow students to become familiar with the surroundings, to meet staff and to make friends from other primary feeder schools.
When students begin Year 7, they visit Lincoln Castle as a whole year group to learn about the city’s rich history and to get to know each other as a year group. As they settle, students embark on an exciting and challenging curriculum. During the initial term and throughout the year, additional opportunities are provided for parents to visit the academy and speak to their child’s tutor; these relationships are important to us.
By working in partnership, we ensure every student reaches their potential, achieving academic excellence, gaining life skills and ultimately ensuring they have the best chance to access good universities, apprenticeships or rewarding careers.
Our Open Evening is an opportunity to learn about our curriculum, our programme of rewards, our extensive range of enrichment opportunities and to meet our students and staff.
Please join us for our Open Evening, Wednesday 13th September, 6.30pm-8.30pm.
