Welcome to Year 6 parents, carers and students who will be joining Don Valley Academy in September 2020.

This page is designed to keep you informed about our transition process over the academic year.

It is normally around this time that we would begin our transition process for Year 7 in Don Valley Academy. As this is not currently possible we have decided to begin in slightly a different way and have designed a project for the year 6 pupils to complete.

The Transition Project

We would love for all of our new Don Valley Academy Year 7s to have a go at the three transition challenges. All three challenges are designed to help us get to know you really well so that we can make your transition from Year 6 into Year 7 is as effective as possible. Please send photos of your completed entries to us via email to

All entries received by Friday 22.05.2020 will be entered into a prize draw.

The Transition project can be accessed in the documents below.

In the meantime you may want to browse through our FAQ section as this may answer some of the questions you and your child have regarding transition.

A welcome from Mr Preston Year 7 Learning Manager
