Transition - Welcome Week

Our Year 7 “Welcome Week” took place on the 23rd August- 27th August. The week provided an opportunity to support our pupils with transition from year 6 to Year 7. Our pupils spent time familiarising themselves with the Academy, forged new relationships with their new teachers and began to build a community with their fellow pupils.

A wealth of activities were provided for the students including cooking, P.E, reading, science experiments, wellbeing activities and team building opportunities. The pupils who attended the sessions were highly positive of the activities provided and all recognised how the week had made them feel more confident about joining the Witham Secondary Academy in September.
