In-Year New Arrivals

We believe that no two learners arriving at Gloucester Academy are the same. Students come from different backgrounds, bring different experiences and have different needs and interests.   That’s why we have a unique and personalised induction programme for all new in-year arrivals, delivered by our dedicated New Arrivals team.

From the moment your child arrives in the academy, they can be sure of a warm welcome, and help and guidance from their own personal induction leader during their few first days and weeks as they become part of a new family here at Gloucester Academy. At the heart of what we do is making sure our new arrivals:

  • are happy, settled, and secure
  • feel a part of academy life as soon as possible
  • are supported if English is not a first language
  • enjoy their learning
  • make friends
  • know who to go to for those all-important conversations
  • are ready to achieve outstanding success

We believe our children deserve nothing less, and we will do the very best for them, whoever they are, wherever they come from.
