Welcome | Year 6 Zone

Welcome to the Chellaston Academy Year 6 zone. As one of the eight Assistant Headteachers one of my responsibilities is to oversee your transition from your current school to us in September. We aim to ensure that both students and parents are fully prepared for the changes that secondary education brings.

These pages have been designed by staff, students and parents to offer support, advice and guidance with every step of the process - from key information relating to the school day through to a video showing the Academy from a student perspective. If the information you require is not available in this area then please contact me so that we can quickly resolve the issues. We hope you enjoy the content and look forward to working with you once you obtain your place in Year 7.
