Welcome to the Transition page of our website.

Taking the step between primary and secondary school is a daunting prospective for parents and children alike. At Noel-Baker Academy, we aim to make the process as smooth, easy and enjoyable as possible. Places for Noel-Baker Academy are allocated by the local authority and are confirmed on National Offer Day on the 1st March 2024.

From this point we are working behind the scenes to gather all necessary information about your son or daughter from their primary school and this means we have the most accurate picture of your child. Should you have changed your address since applying for a secondary place (since October 2023) please let us know so that we can send all correspondences to the correct address.

During these times we are working our hardest to ensure that the form groups are designed to support your child’s progress and we are working to ensure that everything about our provision in September for year 7, as well as the rest of the year groups, is in line with the government’s recent guidance. We have taken information from the primary schools as well as the Friends information that has been sent back to the Academy to ensure these groups meet your child’s needs.

Here is our guide to Parent Guide for Noel-Baker Academy which is packed full of information all about your new school life in September
