Welcome to Garstang Community Academy

Welcome to our transition page for 2021. We are delighted that your child will be joining Garstang Community Academy in September. 


The transition from primary to secondary school is an exciting time, full of challenges and experiences for both parent and child.  We work very hard to ensure maximum success for all of our students so that they are ready for the challenges of secondary school, enjoying new friendships and the new opportunities the transition brings. We work closely with the Year 6 teachers to ensure that we receive all the required information about our new students. 


We would usually be inviting you to visit GCA for our Transition Treasure Hunt in March followed by a visit to your child at their primary school. The Summer Term would usually include an induction day at Garstang Community Academy and an Information Evening for parents/carers. As you can appreciate, we will have to think and work differently this year due to the current pandemic, but rest assured, we will provide you and your child with everything required to make the transition to Garstang Community Academy a successful one. 


Keep checking back in on this page for further updates. We look forward to seeing you soon. 


** Year 7 and Year 11 will return to school on Thursday 2nd September.  Years 8, 9 and 10 will be welcomed back on Friday 3rd September.  Please note Years 7 and 11 will NOT be in school on Friday 3rd September. All students will then return on Monday 6th September **
