My Name is Mr. Cookson. I am one of the Assistant Principals at Tollbar Academy and also in charge of supporting you as you move from your school to our Academy. Normally by now I would have visited you at your schools to tell you all about Tollbar, talk to your teachers to see what you are all like and answer any questions you may have. One question I always get asked is, 'Will I get in to trouble if I get lost?' The answer is 'No' so don't worry! We are all very friendly here and students and staff look forward to welcoming and helping our new Year 6 children as they start on their next stage of their schooling at Tollbar Academy.
Unfortunately, because of Lockdown, I have not been able to meet you all but I promise you that I am working with your schools and teachers to make sure that you have a smooth move to Tollbar in September.
You will receive a 'New Intake Pack' in the post shortly with lots of information in about Tollbar and what your life at the Academy will be like. This will have lots of information in about what the school day is like, what clubs we offer and also lots of stuff your parents and carers will want to read.
Although Tollbar is a very big school, we are very friendly and look after each other. This year is going to be a bit different than previous years but I know that together we can get through this and come out the other side with smiles on our faces.
If you have any questions about the Academy or Transition you can contact the Academy in a number of ways. You can find these on our website, but make sure you speak to a grown up first.
We look forward to seeing you soon
