The Greatest Show - Y6 Open Night

Last Thursday the academy hosted our own version of The Greatest Show for prospective students, and their parents, from our local Primary Schools. Thank you to all those that were able to resist the lure of Hull Fair and attended. We hope you weren't disappointed!
 
As always the academy was a hive of activity and nearly 250 pupils took the opportunity to explore the academy to witness stilt walkers and fire eaters in action. The opportunity to follow a route around the academy allowed those in attendance to spend valuable time in the subject areas that were of interest to them and speak to key staff regarding individual needs.
 
The winner of our competition is Owen Gallagher from Ainthorpe Primary School. Well done! The draw was selected at random and pupils qualified for selection by visiting all 12 Department areas and collecting all 12 themed stamps. Owen will receive a Family Pass to a UK attraction of his choice. We will be in touch to confirm details!
 
We are well aware that choice for Secondary Education is crucial and that it is important you are informed when making your decision for September 2020. Time is ticking! The feedback from parents and pupils both on the night, and since, has been excellent. Your support is greatly appreciated.
 
Should you have been unable to attend on the night or would like to arrange another visit prior to October's deadline for selection then please contact the academy on (10482) 352939.

Y6 Virtual Open Night - Transition Update

Due to the current restrictions that we all face we are unable to host our annual Open Night for prospective pupils and their parents/carers. We acknowledge the important decision that you all are set to make in selecting your preference for secondary education in 2021 and are keen for that decision to be an informed one.

Thus, we are hosting a Virtual Open Night on Thursday 8th October 2020 for all pupils that are considering Sirius Academy West as their destination for September 2021. The evening will feature the premiere of our own short film and also provide additional links to other informative videos. These will include introductions to key staff, testimonials from current students, overviews of the varied subjects and courses available at the academy, and an all access tour following a current student during an academy day.

The event will also promote the academy’s thorough transition programme that seeks to remove barriers to movement from Year 6 to Year 7 and allow all pupils to thrive on arrival. Despite the enforced closure in March, many pupils in our local Primary Schools have already started this journey with themed visits to the academy in Year 5. 

The academy has been heavily oversubscribed for places within Year 7 in recent years and we expect this to be repeated again this year. We encourage pupils and parents to not miss out!

For any additional information regarding the event, and/or details regarding the transition process, please contact Mr Gordon on (01482) 352939. All of the Year 6 pupils in our local Primary Schools will soon receive individual invites to their evening.
