Inductions & New Students

Welcome to The Ebbsfleet Academy

We are excited and look forward to welcoming our new students and families who will be joining The Ebbsfleet Academy. We understand how important the transition process is for all children and their families when moving into a new education phase and starting at a new school.   

Given the current situation, we are constantly reviewing our induction processes to ensure we make the move to The Ebbsfleet Academy as positive as it can be.  Please be assured we are liaising with your child’s school to ensure we are better placed to support your child to make confident adjustments to their new school.

Preparing for successful transitions

Moving from primary school to secondary school is an exciting time of life, but it can also be a daunting prospect.  It’s important to highlight moving to a new school offers greater independence, and a world of opportunity. 

For our new students and their families we have created a ‘Year 7 Transition Programme’ to help prepare for the first day and the years to follow.  Equipped with knowledge and questions answered we hope it will help to build confidence making the transition smoother and easier.

We hope you find the programme a useful and supportive resource that will help to facilitate a successful transition. 

We want to hear from you...

If you have any questions about joining the academy, please do not hesitate to contact the school.  Similarly, if there are any significant circumstances that you think may affect your child's schooling, please get in touch to discuss the situation in confidence, by emailing

We will continue to keep you updated and very much look forward to meeting you and your child as soon as it is safe to do so.

The Ebbsfleet Academy Admissions Team

In advance of your child joining us and to support them making the move to secondary school, we hope the programme we have developed will help them to adjust. The online programme provides a range of resources from interactive online events, videos, downloadable files and useful links so that together you can become familiar with their new surroundings, teachers, subjects, ways of working and the rules and routines of the academy.
