Forms to be completed

To avoid form filling during the transition period, we have included the pastoral forms that need completing in your child’s transition pack that they will receive over the next few weeks when our leadership team visit the primary schools. We kindly ask for parents/carers to complete all the pastoral forms and bring them back on the first day of transition week (4-6 July 2023). The forms will be collected on arrival at the academy. However, if you experience any issues, please contact the academy for further support.

Primary events

We run an active programme of events for primary school students to enable them to experience life in a secondary school setting and to take part in masterclasses to experience some of our specialist teaching areas on offer.

These events are on offer to all years 4, 5 and 6 pupils and can be booked by parents or by the primary school itself.

Curriculum enrichment days

Our enrichment days are unique to Walton and allow year 5 students to spend the day at Walton to engage with curriculum areas within the classroom setting. All local feeder primary schools are invited to take part.

Contact us

If you have any questions at all about our transition programme or would be interested in booking onto one of our events, then please do not hesitate to contact us.
