Welcome to Four Dwellings Academy!

As your Year 6 child enters their final term at primary school we understand that they will be feeling a mixture of excitement and apprehension at starting secondary school with us in September. We likewise recognise that many parents or carers will also be feeling the same!

To ease the move to our Academy we are offering a comprehensive package of ‘transition’ events to allow you and your child to experience a taste of what secondary school life will be like, experience curriculum lessons, meet their new form tutor, make new friends and meet our skilled and wonderful staff.
 
Feedback from parents about the transition process last year was as follows
My child found the Induction process an enjoyable experience. 94% Strongly agree/agree  
The experience of transition from Year 6-7 was a smooth one. 94% Strongly agree/agree
 
Details about events, how the free academy uniform will be distributed and other useful information will be posted to parents over the next few weeks. General information about Four Dwellings Academy can be found by exploring this website.
 
Update: 16/04/2015 - We can now confirm that our 'Induction Day' will be held on Wednesday 1st July 2015.
