Information for New Year 7 September 2020

Year 6 Welcome message from the Principal

Dear Students and Families of our New Year 7

I hope you are keeping safe and well during this difficult period.  We hope that this current situation soon eases and that life will readjust, as we find our way together through these unparalleled times.

We are delighted that you have chosen to come to the Milton Keynes Academy.  Rest assured that we have been working in partnership with your primary schools to ensure we know about you and your individual talents, skills and needs.

Although we cannot yet provide you with details of our plans in September, we can tell you that we will make sure that you be introduced to the school, your teachers and our fantastic facilities through the website page dedicated to you, our Class of 2020.  When you do come into school, you will receive special induction sessions so that you know how to keep safe as well as becoming accustomed to life at a secondary school.

At MKA, we pride ourselves on providing Opportunities for Everyone, and you will be no exception. I hope that you read the letter that I sent you and that you enjoyed reading our Knowledge Connected Magazine. One of the things that sets the Academy apart is that we are part of a wider family of schools, belonging as we do to the Creative Education Trust. Working alongside our wider family, we are able to provide you with a wealth of experiences and I hope that the magazine has given you a flavour of the exciting opportunities that will be available to you.

Mr Copson, Head of Year 7, and his team will keep you informed of all you need to know by his weekly updates on the website, from details about uniform through to how the restaurant works.  Watch out for competitions and challenges that you can take part in now!

We are so looking forward to welcoming you.

Fiona Seddon

Virtual Transition Day Activities at Home

Moving to a secondary school is a big step along our pupils journey in education. We very much would like all our new starters to experience some of the fun activities that they would have experienced on our usual in school Transition Day. For safety reasons, this cannot take place this year. instead we are pleased to announce that all our new pupils will receive a small parcel of activities from different subject areas such as Maths, English and Science. Some activities will be practical, from decorating a gingerbread person to making a sock puppet. This will enable all pupils to be creative. We would very much like to see our new pupils creations and these can be emailed to
