Year 6-7 transition

Once accepted for a place at The Ebbsfleet Academy, your child will undertake a comprehensive transition programme, aimed at making the change to secondary school as smooth as possible. Covid restrictions allowing this will include the Transition Coordinator visiting the students in their Primary Schools, the students visiting the Academy on 'Headstart Day' and family interviews with The Ebbsfleet Academy.  Virtual events will be planned if face to face meetings can not take place.

To make an 'In Year' application to The Ebbsfleet Academy for entry into Year groups 7 – 11, parents/carers should contact the Academy in the first instance. We will then make the necessary arrangements to process your application.

Oversubscription Criteria

If we are over subscribed preference will be given according to the following Kent County Council criteria (for full details see the Admission to Secondary Schools in Kent 2020 booklet):

  • Children in Local Authority Care
  • Where the student has a brother or sister (birth, adopted or step sibling) currently attending The Ebbsfleet Academy
