Parents - Transition Information

We are looking forward to welcoming our new Year 7 students to Sheffield Springs Academy.  We are working hard to make the transition as smooth as it can be in these uncertain times.


Due to the constant changes in coronavirus activity, we have been thinking very carefully about how we can support pupils over the coming weeks and months, to make sure they are well prepared and comfortable in their new surroundings in September. We were hopeful to deliver our Early Risers programme as normal in school starting Monday 5th July 2021, but due to the rising cases in the local area we have been advised from Public Health England to deliver a virtual early risers programme.


Over the next two weeks, we will be adding lots of helpful information to this page about the move to our school. Our parent information site launched on the 21st June 2021.  Our pupil site for Virtual Early Risers was launched on the 29th June 2021.

We are passionate about providing the right transition from primary to secondary school and to make the process as smooth as possible for pupils and parents/carers.  Please look around and explore our website.  On the 24th June 2021 Mr Shipman delivered a live Welcome Evening.  This was an opportunity to ask our Headteacher any questions you may have.  Below is a recording of the event and if you still have questions after watching it, don't hesitate to contact our transition team by email:

We hope you have a great summer, keep safe and we look forward to welcoming your child to the Sheffield Springs family in September.
