Primary School Transition Programme

Choosing the right secondary school is vital to ensure that children are inspired to reach their full potential.

We offer a variety of opportunities for pupils in Years 5 and 6 to visit Nova Hreod Academy and experience our vibrant learning environment for themselves, and we collaborate with primary schools to offer Maths and Science challenges, STEM activities and a wide range of other opportunities. In addition, our staff and students visit pupils in their primary schools to answer any questions about life at Nova Hreod.

Pupils join us from primary schools across the town. Our GCSE results have improved every year since becoming an Academy and our reputation for having high standards and improving the skills and aspirations of our students is being noticed within the community. Now that Ofsted have acknowledged the strengths of the Academy with a “Good” grade, more people are making Nova Hreod Academy their “school of choice.”


We welcome the opportunity to meet parents whose children are considering their choice of secondary school at our Open Mornings throughout the year.
