Induction Day

Moving to Vale of York Academy

Helpful information for those transitioning from Y6 to Vale of York Academy
We are delighted that this year we are able to welcome Year 6 students to the school for the city-wide Induction Day on Wednesday 5 July.
On this day, pupils from all over the city will get the opportunity to spend the day at their new secondary school and here at Vale of York Academy we have a fun and interactive day planned for you! The day will begin with a welcome assembly and meeting your form tutor, before spending the day in your tutor group exploring the different parts of the school through the range of activities you’ll take part in. 
If you have any questions about the Induction Day, please do not hesitate to contact Mr Orr via email –
Feeling nervous?

We understand that some students find the move to secondary school more difficult than others, so we ensure that additional support is there for you during your move to Vale of York Academy.

Take a look at Mr Orr’s video below so that you can see what the school looks like!

Summer School

We have received funding which will allow us this August to put on a Summer School. This will be a targeted provision for pupils who, through liaison with primary school teachers, it was felt would benefit from an extra layer of Transition.

The Summer School will run from Tuesday 29th – Thursday 31st August and Mr Orr will contact those families of pupils identified directly after the Transition day on 5 July.
