Year 6 to Year 7 Transition 2021

Primary to Secondary Transition –  Class of 2021

As you are aware in order to follow the government’s guidelines, we’ve had to adjust our arrangements for supporting this year’s Year 6 transition.  It’s been reluctantly agreed across the City that the three Transfer Days are suspended.

At Derby Moor Spencer Academy we are going to offer a reduced transition process to a number of students where possible and parents have been informed directly of the process.
