Hello to Year 6 children and families,

Dear Parents/Carers, 
This year, due to the ongoing challenges and restrictions on gatherings resulting from Coronavirus, Jesmond Park Academy will be having a pre-prepared Year 6 virtual open event.  This will include resources that parents will be able to access through the school website from Thursday 15th October onwards.  We will be delivering prospectuses to our primary schools over the coming weeks to give out to Year 6 children in time for the resources going onto the school website.  There is a news item for parents and carers on our school website with further information and any further updates will also appear there.
Many Thanks 
Jesmond Park Academy Transition Team 
Sacred Heart Transition 


Our Y6 Open Evening cannot go ahead this year due to ongoing restrictions with COVID-19. Instead we have put together some video presentations which cover the main messages that would have been discussed on this evening. These videos can be found on a dedicated part of our school website at:

Kings Priory School – Year 7 Admissions 2021

It is very strange times indeed. Normally we would be welcoming some of your pupils to our Open evening and Admissions events for those families wishing to join us in September. Due to the current climate and in replacement of these events we have created some information packs that outline our offer for Year 7 admissions 2021.

I have attached a letter from Mr Sanderson (Principal) and our Year 7 Brochure 2021. Please could you share this with any parents who are expressing interest in Kings Priory School. Our team is also very happy to discuss our admissions process via the telephone or email or

Best Wishes,

Rebecca Watson

Dear Parents/Carers, 

I hope this email finds you well and the start to the new school year has gone smoothly for you.

I am pleased to be able to write and outline the application arrangements for any current Year 6 students who wish to apply to Emmanuel College for September 2021 start. Prospective parents can also access this information from our website.

At this time of year, we would normally be welcoming prospective Year 6 students into College to meet our staff and see our facilities for themselves. Unfortunately, we are not able to do so this year and have sought to provide online all the information that would normally be provided to students and parents at this time. The Admissions page on our website, which can be accessed here includes our prospectus, a video to introduce some of our staff and students, frequently asked questions and a link for parents to apply online.

If you have any questions about our admissions process that aren’t covered on our website, please do not hesitate to contact me directly via

Yours sincerely

Dr Katy Benbow

Assistant Vice Principal (Academic Services)
