Welcome Event

At Archbishop Sentamu Academy we know that the move to secondary school can be both exciting and scary for children.


We also know that as a parent, you want to make the right choice for your child. To help with this, we’re inviting your family to join us for a number of fun and practical welcome events at the academy.

Research tells us that children do better at school and achieve more in life when parents and schools work together. We’re looking forward to meeting and working with you and your family so that the move from primary to secondary school will be a positive experience.

As an added incentive to join us we will be holding a raffle for an iPad at our final session. For every welcome event you attend you will be entered into the draw for an iPad*.

The welcome events we are running are:

  • Smoothie ‘Tastic** – 7th February 2013. In this session you’ll be developing a new, healthy smoothy drink that will become the featured smoothy at our Xing Smoothie bar.
