Our School

Transition into our School

WELCOME to Year 7s starting in September 2023!

Temple Learning AcademyAt Temple Learning Academy, we are so excited to welcome you to our truly unique school. Joining a new school is such an exciting part of growing up but we also know it can sometimes be a little daunting. That is why we have a huge range of ways to get to know your new school and have a wonderful start with us in September 2023.

Check out our YouTube channel over the coming months to meet various members of the team and get to know the school building. You can also follow us on social media - Twitter and Facebook - to see and hear the wonderful achievements of our students. We are so proud of our school and the wonderful community we serve – we cannot wait for you to take your place in our school.

Once we have received your contact details, our team will get in touch and share a wealth of information with you about the school. You can arrange a visit to the school, and a meeting with one of our Senior Leaders at any time throughout the transition process.

If you would like to know more about a bespoke transition meeting please email and put “Transition Meeting” as the subject line.

Here is a timeline of the communication and events which will support your child in a smooth transition into Temple Learning Academy.

March / April 2023

Temple Learning Academy Welcome Pack will be shared with you via post and email. This will contain more detailed information about our school and the transition process

May / June 2023

Our staff will visit your child at their primary school. This is a fantastic opportunity for us to get to know each other and plan for their arrival at Temple Learning Academy. Our staff will speak to key adults within your child’s primary school to get to know their strengths and talents, what help and support they need to achieve their best and anything else which it is important for us to know before they join us.

For students who have additional educational needs, such as SEND or multi-lingual students, we will offer enhanced transition arrangements. This will include additional visits to TLA to become familiar with the building and more communications between home, primary school and our highly skilled Inclusion team.

July 2023

Your child will attend a New Starters’ Day in early July (we’ll confirm the date in your welcome pack) where they will meet their new class mates and enjoy some taster lessons in their new school. That evening, you and your child will attend a New Starters evening where you will meet key TLA staff in person, including your child’s new Form Tutor, and hear more about their experience in Year 7.

This year we will be inviting your child to join us for the last two weeks before the summer holidays. In these two weeks your child will experience a range of exciting challenges and learning opportunities, and most importantly get to know their new school and male new friends.

August 2023

We will be offering a TLA Summer Camp to our new Year 7 students. This will include a range of fun activities, learning challenges and new experiences. Students will be invited to attend the Summer Camp during the summer term.
