Our new year 7

A very warm welcome to St. Aidan’s family to our precious year 7 pupils, parents and carers. Please try not to worry, we are working hard to make sure you have the very best start ever at St. Aidan’s. We are really excited to meet you, get to know you as the incredible pupils that you are and to welcome you in person into our amazing Academy.

Please stay alert and very safe.

Mrs Gibbon

Despite the current circumstances we find ourselves in, we are determined to ensure that you have the best possible transition into our Academy. We have heard lots of wonderful things about you from your teachers at your primary school and we know that you will be very happy at St. Aidan’s CoE Academy. I would like to take this opportunity to provide you with some further updates on our plans. 

Welcome to our precious new Year 7!

Virtual meetings

We understand that as parents and carers you will be feeling anxious about your child starting a new school. We want to ensure that they have the opportunity to meet staff virtually so that they can ask questions. Mrs Whillis is working with our primary schools to arrange meetings. 


Unfortunately, we are not able to hold a session where you can try on uniform. The uniform requirements and details on how to order can be found on the uniform section included in your Welcome Pack and also on our website under  Uniform or by clicking here.

Please order uniform as soon as possible, we have been advised that delivery times may be longer than expected. 

Key staff

Should you have any further questions on transition, please find contact details below of transition leads. When your child starts with us the main points of contact are the Form Tutor and the Head of Year 7.
