At Salford City Academy, we understand that starting high school is a challenging yet an exciting time for both students and parents. Therefore, to help ensure a smooth transition, we work closely with our feeder primary schools and make sure they are fully prepared to begin their journey with us here. This where we have launched a new transition programme called Step Up. Within Step Up, we offer events for primary school children and their parents from Year 3 to Year 6 to ensure you have all the information you need to make the right decision.


Thank you for choosing Salford City Academy for your child's secondary school, we look forward to welcoming them to the SCA community.

We have some fun and informative events coming up this summer term:

  • Students and their parents will be invited to a Y6 Parents Evening on Thursday 19th June 2024 where they will get to meet their new form tutors

  • On 27th & 28th June 2024, students will be invited to attend Transition days at Salford City Academy, where they will have the opportunity to explore the school, meet and speak with teachers, participate in lessons and also get to know their new school friends and teachers.

  • On 2nd July 2024, we will see over 400 primary school children join us for our annual Primary Sports Day where children will be able to participate in an array of excititing competitions. Parent's are also welcome to join us on this fun filled day which includes an ice cream van and a DJ!

Our Transition team here at SCA are dedicated to making sure that all students experience a smooth transition process to secondary school, and we are here to help every step of the way. 

Students with individual needs will be offered a range of extra support where appropriate.

These may include; extra visits to SCA and individual meetings with key school staff such as The SENDCO, their new from tutor and also the Head of Year 7.
