Dear Parent/Carer 

Transition 2022

Students are invited to join us at Outwood Academy City for four days from Tuesday 28th to Friday 1st July 
We ask that students arrives at 8.00 for an 8.25 start - they will enter the site via the main entrance on Stradbroke Road. Staff will be on hand to guide them into the building. Parents/carers will not be permitted to enter the school grounds. Primary school students are not permitted to travel on the academy bus due to insurance reasons.
The four day programme will include assemblies, a range of classroom lessons, a practical PE lesson, a tour of the academy, and further activities designed to improve your child's knowledge and understanding of how the academy operates. They will also bring home a resource that will provide you with a range of useful information.
We ask that your child wears their current school uniform, and brings a pen and a pencil. They are not required to bring a PE kit. We will provide a snack and drink at break time and also provide lunch with a drink free of charge. Students can bring a packed lunch if they wish to do so.
The day will finish at 14.15 and students can be collected from the main entrance.  If you are collecting students in a car please use the drop off / collection zone in the top car park.
