Working with other school settings
We recognise the importance of working in partnership with our local pre-schools, primary schools and our local secondary school – Newmarket Academy, to ensure a smooth transition process between the educational phases. Pupils in Years 3-6 in a programme of activities within a secondary school setting. Staff from the Academy visit us to talk to the children and parents and carers of our Year 6 pupils.
The Newmarket Primary Schools and those from surrounding villages work closely together sharing expertise and resources in order to achieve the best possible outcomes for children within our community.
Although the vast majority of pupils leave our school to continue their learning journey at Newmarket Academy, a number choose other local secondary schools including Mildenhall College Academy (www.mildenhall.attrust.org.uk), Soham Village College (www.sohamvc.org), Bottisham Village College (www.bottishamvc.org) Bury St Edmunds King Edward VI School (www.king-ed.suffolk.sch.uk) and Bury St Edmunds County Upper School (www.countyupper.suffolk.sch.uk).
