Induction Day at Nightingale Academy
Tuesday 1st July 2014
Arrival Time 8.45-9.00am - Finish Time 3.00 pm 

This is an exciting time for you and your child, as they come to the end of their primary education and look forward to starting secondary school. Our aim is to make this transition a smooth and positive experience, so that any anxieties that you or your child may have are addressed and answered to your satisfaction.

To this end, we are arranging an
Induction Day at the Academy on 1st July 2014, for all Year 7 students starting with us in September. Your child’s primary school has been informed of this date.


We would ask all children to arrive at Nightingale Academy at 9 am, where they will be met by our staff.  A variety of exciting activities will take place on the day and lunch will be provided. This will be a great opportunity for your child to view our state-of-the-art facilities, meet our dedicated teachers and meet other students who will be joining the Academy this September.

New Parents Evening 

Tuesday 8th July 2014 

Arrival Time 5.00 pm - Finish Time 7.00 pm

Following your child’s day at school, we invite all new parents and carers to join us to meet the senior team and have the opportunity to ask any questions or raise any concerns that you may have. Following the more formal part of the evening, there will be an opportunity to complete the admission forms, sign up for the summer school and purchase uniform. Staff and students will be available throughout the evening for your convenience.
