Year Six Academy
With the highly successful development of the Year 6 Academy we now offer the unique transition experience of cross phase teaching using secondary and primary expertise. The Year 6 Academy has been rated ‘outstanding’ in the three OFSTED inspections of East Worlington, Lapford and Chulmleigh Primaries in 2014. Subjects are taught both at the primary site and on the Secondary campus. Science is taught in the college science labs, allowing the students to use lab resources such as Bunsen burners and light boxes. French is taught by the MFL head of department, Music by Head of Music, Design Technology in the technology lab, Drama in the new ‘state of the art’ drama studio, giving the children not only high quality teaching and learning, but also constant transition opportunities. The year 6 also have their lunch in the college canteen and access the Multi Use Games Area and tennis courts at playtime giving them plenty of sporting opportunities and space.
Results demonstrate the effectiveness of this unique approach and the children are very excited and enthusiastic about the set up as are staff and parents.
