Moving to high school is an exciting but often nerve-racking part of a child’s educational journey. There is a wealth of educational research highlighting the positive influence that an effective transition process can have on a child’s academic progress and future well-being. At Broadland High Ormiston Academy we want all of our students to feel safe, happy, enthusiastic and engaged with their learning. As an academy, we go to great lengths to ensure that this is the case.
Broadland High Ormiston Academy has seven main primary schools. Expanding numbers and a longstanding reputation for excellence mean that the academy is also a popular choice for many students from beyond our catchment area. The academy has a large number of additional primary schools with students who transfer to us and we are often over-subscribed. Our transition programme has been adapted over the years to ensure that we fully meet the needs of all students. We are proud of our reputation and strive to ensure that it continues to grow and flourish.
Throughout the year we work closely with our primary schools, delivering team building and aspiration sessions to prospective students, both in their own school and here at Broadland. These experiences, alongside strong communication and the sharing of key information, ensure that an early positive relationship is built between every student and their family and the group of schools concerned.
