We are delighted you have chosen Stationers’ Crown Woods for your secondary education and would like to officially welcome you to our Academy family! We look forward to celebrating your successes and achievements over the next seven years!
Our aim is to ensure your journey from primary to secondary school is as smooth and worry-free as possible. We fully understand that it can be a stressful time for you and your parent/carers and we will do everything possible to address and minimise any concerns you may have. We have a very comprehensive transition programme lead by Ms Lloyd and you will be meeting her in the weeks ahead.
We are guided by our Values, Vision & Mission in everything we do and these will become very familiar to you. Please be reassured that your success and happiness is our number one priority, we know that teenage years can be challenging at times but by working together with you and your parents/carers we can guide, support, instill self-belief and resilience, to help you realise your dreams. We very much look forward to meeting you all.

Saturday 22nd April: Cognitive Ability Test. To help us assess your ability level and determine which of our Small Schools will best support your learning, we will use three sources of information (1) The Band that you have been placed in; (2) your Year 6 teacher assessment and (3) results of our Cognitive Ability test. This requires no advance preparation on your part. We will write to you with further details about arrangements for this day shortly.
