Year 7 2019


We are delighted you have selected Stationers’ Crown Woods for your secondary education and look forward to officially welcoming you  to our Academy family and 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 Mrs Loughlin who you will be meeting in the Spring and Summer term of 2019.

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.
