Welcome to Tuxford Academy

It is with great pleasure that we welcome you to Tuxford Academy, we are delighted that you have chosen Tuxford for the next steps in your child’s education. Transition is an exciting time and we really hope that your child enjoys their first experiences of the academy and it helps to ensure a smooth transition from year 6 to year 7.

We are here to support year 6 pupils with transition to secondary education. Here’s to an inspiring, rewarding and successful few years!

Transition 2022 is from Tuesday 5 July to Friday 8 July 2022. Transition packs have been sent to our feeder and larger primaries this week and students joining us from non-feeder primaries will receive theirs by post. Inside the pack you will find information about the academy and a selection of enrolment and consent forms – please complete and return these to the academy as soon as possible.

We are really looking forward to welcoming our new students. We have not held our traditional transition for the past two years due to Covid so we are excited to have year 6 back on-site with us in July. Your son or daughter will experience a selection of lessons from our transition timetable and start to navigate their way around our academy. They will have time to explore our outdoor areas and visit the cafeteria and Clumber Gallery dining areas is they wish.

On the last day of transition we are taking all students to Walesby Forest Activity Centre for a fun-packed ‘Team Tuxford’ day! There will be many activities on offer but the water based sessions are always a favourite!

Please look out for an access code for Weduc coming soon (this will be sent to the parent/carer who made the online application at NCC only – all parents and carers will have access from September).

Who do I contact if I have further questions?

Please email any questions or queries to parents@tuxford-ac.org.uk and they will be forwarded to the relevant member of staff to get back to you.
