Welcome to The Elizabethan Academy

We are delighted to be welcoming you and your child to The Elizabethan Academy community. We are immensely proud of our school and have nothing but high hopes for your child to enjoy and flourish here on their educational journey.

The academy is oversubscribed and our intake has risen steadily year on year, with Year 7 often transitioning from as many as thirty different primary schools.  We serve a mainly rural catchment, with small numbers of students coming to us from many of these schools.  We strive to ensure that any students joining us from out of catchment, quickly make friends and settle well.

One parent told us: “The thought of my daughter's transition from a small village school to a large secondary, filled me with dread!  However, I have only the highest regard for the Elizabethan and the systems in place to ease the way for their new students.  I couldn't be happier with the way my daughter has settled into The Elizabethan. I am very proud of her and commend the school for supporting her along the way.”

We have launched this dedicated space on our website so that we can keep you up to date with activities, plans and information, between now and the beginning of September 2024.  It is really important to us that you and your child experience as smooth a transition as possible.  With this in mind, for your information and reference, you can access a copy of the Welcome presentation which was delivered by Ms Withall, our Transition Coordinator, at the Welcome Event (held on 20th March 2024).

Over the coming weeks we will upload information that we feel will assist you with all your preparations and arrangements ready for your child to join us in September this year.  This will include information about uniform, I Pay, bus services, our student information system, Transition Days, Summer School, Academy procedures and much more.

Please be aware that there is already of wealth of valuable information for you to access across other sections of our website.  I would also recommend that you try to access our social media sites, Facebook and Instagram.

I would also like to take the opportunity confirm that where a child who starts with us in September, has a sibling in school, they will be placed in the same House.
