Hello and welcome to the Year 6 into 7 web page

We are looking forward to you joining us and want to ensure your move from primary school to the Academy is both positive and enjoyable. We want your time at KESH to be successful and fun. We will be working with you, your family and your primary school teachers to find out as much as we can about you to help you settle into senior school life. By doing this we can make sure we are prepared to support you when you arrive in September.

Moving on to senior school is an important step – you will be studying a lot of different subjects and having to move around the school between different lessons. You will have access to excellent resources e.g. P.E., Technology, ICT, Music and Science.

You will also start off again as the youngest in the school. We will work hard over the coming months to support you as you prepare to join us.

You will have a form tutor who will be there to support you both when you start and throughout your time with us.

Parent's are able to check our Facebook page and you can also follow us on Twitter.

If you or your parents have a question you would like to ask please feel free to contact the Academy using the form below.


Each person you meet is a doorway into another world.

Be Active.

Activity helps to strengthen the body and refreshes the mind.

Keep Learning.

Everyday we have the potential to learn something new.

Help Others.

Each of us needs a helping hand from time to time.

Take Notice.

Being aware of a problem is the first step to take.

  • The drop down list for schools is also quite sensitive, so please ensure the correct school has been selected prior to submitting your application as this is the school that your details will be sent to in order to check you meet the criteria
  • Please include a space in your postcode, this makes the checking process so much easier our end.

  • The closing date for applications will be Sunday 3rd July 2022.
  • Vouchers should be issued the last week in July. We are looking into the possibility of issuing voucher codes rather than paper vouchers. This is still in early planning, but please be certain that your email address is correct and monitored for this reason.
