Archway School

Year 7

If you are a prospective parent please click here to see our approaching transition information.

We are delighted that you have been offered a place at Archway School and we look forward to welcoming you as a student here in September. 2021 is a very important year for the School as we celebrate our 60th (Diamond) Anniversary.  You will be part of a special year group, our ‘Diamond Intake’.  We are sure that you will enjoy your time at Archway School and we trust that you will choose to stay with us all the way through to Sixth Form where you will have the chance to follow hundreds of students who have gone before you to achieve great things in life.



Getting to know your way around your new school is an important part of settling to life at secondary school. Take a look at our virtual tour of the school to familiarise yourself with your new surroundings.

To find out what you will study in Key Stage 3 follow the Curriculum link and you can discover more detail about your learning, not only in Year 7 but in Years 8 & 9 too! 

More information about your transition to Archway will be added to this page between now and September. Do keep checking for updates.

We are inviting you all to take part in our exciting Transition Challenges. There will be one each month between now and September. We are really looking forward to seeing your entries.
