Q3 Academy Great Barr
All About Transition
Here's a wonderful video produced by Liz Stevenson who manages transition across Sandwell with some really useful advice for students and parents/carers on things that might be different here from Primary School. Remember that this isn't specific to Q3 Academy Great Barr, it's applicable to everyone moving from primary to secondary education.
There are videos specific to Q3 Academy Great Barr on our Looking Good! page, so don't forget to check those out too!
Getting in Touch
Please remember that as an Academy we are not managed by Sandwell Local Authority. Therefore, if you have any questions about transition, you need to contact us directly here.
Guidance for students
Explore the eTransition Hub and get to know the Academy, there's lots of information about us on here and on the Q3 Academy Great Barr website, so you can find out how we work #ThisIsUs
Share with us a bit about you, so we can start getting to know you too #ThisIsMe
We're not expecting you to arrive to the Academy knowing everything, so don't worry - we'll give you time to settle and get to grips with our way of working when you join us.
Have a go at some of the challenges we've set on here; they'll help with your transition. It's a big step to Year 7, but we want to help make it really easy, so whilst it might be a little scary at first, don't worry - this is normal! None of these challenges are compulsory, but we bet you'll have a bit of fun doing some of them!
