Transition Information 2020
We’re excited that you have chosen Co-op Academy Priesthorpe and look forward to meeting you in September.
Transitioning from Year 6 to Year 7 can be an overwhelming time and this year it’s going to be a little different for our students and staff.
The best people to speak to regarding transition are Mrs Cronshaw and Mrs Newsome. They’re doing a great job preparing for September and ensuring things are in place when schools are allowed to re-open!
As soon as we have further information available we will share this with you.

Coaching Group Form – Students must complete
Visitors to our academy regularly comment on the excellent relationships and caring ethos of the school. We are proud of the support systems we offer our students and the inclusivity that underpins them. Our pastoral support system has student coaching at its heart. Every student in the academy is part of a small coaching group of around 12 students, from the same year group, which meet together three times a week. Coaching groups are created by the Key Stage 3 team. We make sure we have a mixture of students from different primary schools in each group. We also make sure each coaching group has the same split of boys and girls with a range of interests.
However, we do understand that for some students joining a new school and not being in the same classes as the people you are with in Year 6 can be difficult. Therefore we try, where possible, to place you in a coaching group with at least one other person that you know. This can be someone from your own school, or somebody you know who is also joining Priesthorpe in Year 7 in September.
