We have been working hard this term in preparing as best we can for your child’s transition to Royal Wootton Bassett Academy. 

Unfortunately, it has been confirmed by Mrs Ellis, Headteacher, that there will be no physical induction days in term 6. This has meant that we have had to adapt and have put together a Virtual Transition Pack for you and your child.

Year 6 Open Evening

Date to be advised for September 2020

This is an open event for parents and Year 6 students to turn up and view the school and all the classrooms and various activities during the course of the evening.  There will be the chance to talk with the Head Teacher, various members of the Leadership team, members of the SEN team, teachers, students and other members of staff you might wish to know more about when transitioning up to secondary school.  There will be two talks by the Head, during the course of the evening and these times will be advertised in the booklet you will be given on the night.  This event doesn't need to be booked, so please just come along and see all the fabulous things that RWBA can offer your student.

Year 6 Parent "Meet the Transition Team" Information Evening

We are holding Parent Information Evenings at our local primary schools and a central meeting at RWBA for all other schools to attend.  This is a chance for any prospective Year 6 Parent/Guardians only to meet some of the staff on the Transition Team and ask any questions they may have.  This is not an offer of a secondary school place, as you will be notified of this by your local council on the 2nd March 2020.
