Miss Adderley & Mrs Parkes - Current Head's of Year 7 (2021-22)

It's been turbulent (and at times uncertain) over the past year, but what we are sure about is that working together we will make the transition period from Y6 to Y7 the best we possibly can. We hope that your child is excited and ready to participate in the opportunities we will be offering.

Our role as Heads of Year 7 is to ensure that students feel safe, meet expectations, are happy in relation to all aspects of life at Barnsley Academy and ensuring students are rewarded for demonstrating our core values which are; Ambition, Confidence, Creativity, Determination, Enthusiasm and Respect. We place real emphasis on developing a growth mindset, which involves encouraging resilience in students to overcome any challenges which they may face both inside and outside of the classroom.

We are very much looking forward to working with parents and carers to support your children in their transition to our Academy in September and we genuinely cannot wait to get Year 7 started on the next steps of their educational journey.

If you have questions currently, then please feel free to use the special email we have created for both parents and students: transition@barnsley-academy.org

We look forward to meeting you all.


Miss. Adderley and Mrs. Parkes
