Year 2 Transfer to Oak Hill Academy
Our Year 2 children are not guaranteed a place at Oakhill Academy however, every year all of the Year 2 children who have wanted to attend Oakhill have been allocated a place.
Parents/Carers need to apply on-line to Hounslow. Applications open beginning of September and close in the middle of January. Parents/Carers must accept a place on-line by the end of April.
Ms White the Headteacher of Feltham Hill I&N and Mrs Saim the Principal of Oakhill Academy work closely together to ensure a smooth transition for all the children.
In the autumn term parents are invited to an open day to visit Oak Hill Academy with their child. In the summer term parents and children are invited to interviews with a senior staff member.
In the summer term Year 2 children attend play times at Oak Hill for about 6 weeks and some children attend for reading buddy sessions.
Year 2 children are invited to performances at Oak Hill Academy so they become familiarised with their new setting.
In July, children spend the day at Oak Hill as well as two move up mornings with their new teacher. Year 3 teachers come and read stories to the children so they become a familiar adult.
Year 2 class teachers meet with Year 3 teachers to talk through children's individual needs.
All of this ensures a very smooth transition for your child.
