We feel there is a lot we can do to make the settling in period as stress-free and enjoyable as possible. That is why we work with students from as early as Year 5 from our feeder schools, inviting them to visit the Academy on a regular basis to familiarise themselves with life at Sir Thomas Wharton Academy.
Within the first few weeks of term we have a full programme of settling in activities designed to help students to get to know the Academy, the staff and each other.
Student numbers attending Sir Thomas Wharton Academy are increasing year on year and we were oversubscribed on entry in 2019. We attract students from 7 local primary schools and also primaries further a field.
