Dear families,

On behalf of everyone at KEVI Handsworth Wood Girls’ Academy, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our school community.

The transition from Key Stage 2 to Key Stage 3 is indeed an exciting time filled with new opportunities and experiences. However, we also recognize that it may bring about some anxieties and challenges for both students and their families.

Please know that our team at the academy is dedicated to providing support and guidance every step of the way. We have implemented a variety of strategies to ensure a smooth transition for all students, addressing any concerns that may arise along the journey.

We want to reassure you that we are here to help and support you through this transition period. Our aim is to provide a nurturing and inclusive environment where every student can thrive and succeed.

I encourage you to explore the resources and information available on our webpage, and don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or need assistance.

We eagerly await the opportunity to meet you all in person and embark on this journey together.

Warm regards,

Miss K Takhar

Assistant Headteacher – Pastoral Care and Student Welfare

Here we have video clips from BBC Bitesize, that also provide discussion that may support further:
