Year 7 Transition

Welcome to our school!

Welcome to all our students and families transitioning to Year 7 at Plymouth Academy of Creative Arts in September.

We are super excited and looking forward to meeting you. Although times are tricky for schools at the moment, it pushes us to think creatively and overcome the challenges of our transition programme and that important work of preparing for change.

Over the coming weeks, we will be updating this website with video content to introduce you to our team of excellent staff. A couple of things you should know about us and our school.

  1. We call each other by our first names. We believe that respect is mutual and it is earnt, not just because we are, “Sir” or “Miss”
  2. We are an all-through school. That means we have children here from 3 to 16 years old, all as one community – a learning village!
  3. Although you will have many more teachers than you might be used to, you will have a tutor who will get to know you and your family the best. Once these are all lined up, they will be in contact with you to say hello.

A message from our Assistant Headteacher Matt:

“The start line. The beginning of anything. You, your journey and where it will take you. Poised in the space between the known and the unknown. Infinite possibility.”
