Welcome to KESH Academy.

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 and a personal 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.
