At East Leake Academy we support year 6 pupils with transition to secondary education. All pupils accepted to ELA will be invited to special transition days held in July each year, to enable them to sample life in the academy and start to adjust to their new surroundings. Parents are invited along to a transition evening where they can have another look around the academy and ask any questions prior to their child starting with us in September.
Our transition leader is Mrs C Baxter.
If you have any questions please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org and queries will be passed to Mrs Baxter.
