Year 6 Secondary School Applications - October Deadline

For many pupils in Year 6 the journey to Sirius Academy West has already started... Some pupils have had the benefit of visiting the academy on multiple occasions in the last 18 months as part of the academy's transition offer. The intended benefit of these visits and events is to reduce the barriers to a successful move from Year 6 to Year 7.
Parents should be aware that the deadline for all pupils in Year 6 to choose their preferences for Secondary Education is Thursday 31st October 2019. It is vital that parents, carers and guardians make their decision before this deadline. Late applications will limit your chances of successfully gaining a place at your preferred destination in Year 7.
For pupils looking to choose Sirius Academy West it is recommended that you put this as your first preference to reduce the chance of disappointment in March when the destinations for Secondary Education are released.
If parents are still undecided about a school for September we are more than happy to arrange individual tours and visits before the deadline. It is important that parents, and pupils, are informed when making this decision. Chances of allocation can be increased by gaining a place via Sporting Aptitude. Pupils looking to take advantage of this route must select Sport when choosing their preference.
For more information regarding the Admissions Process and to book an individual visit please contact the academy on (01482) 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.
