Transition to Q3 Academy Great Barr



If your child has been awarded a place at Q3 Academy Great Barr for September 2020, firstly, welcome to the family! We’re really excited you’ll be sharing your learning journey with us, and we can’t wait to welcome you at the Academy!

Hopefully you find the following timescale useful, so you know where we are in the transition process. Please be aware that some dates may change if information is delayed in being sent to us, we will endeavour to notify you of any changes where possible. Also, the appeals process will run alongside this timescale, so the process may differ for students allocated a place late on in the process.

Please note that owing to closures due to COVID-19, we have had to cancel some events and may need to make further amendments at a later date. The safety of our students and staff is always our priority, so we’ll add more transition events later in the year when it’s safe to do so.

2nd March 2020

We receive a list of the students initially awarded a place at the Academy from Sandwell Local Authority.

6th March 2020

Upon receipt of parent/carer contact details, we’ll send out a letter welcoming you to the Academy with a few ‘next steps’ details, asking you to register your e-mail address with us.

June 2020

Towards the end of June we will receive a more comprehensive file of personal details for each new student, once this is imported to our Academy systems, then we’ll send out an e-mail requesting you to confirm these details which will enrol your child at the Academy.

24th June 2020

You will be sent an invitation ahead of our New Intake event. We’re hoping this will happen on Wednesday 24th June, but if the Coronavirus situation means this isn’t possible then we’ll arrange a similar event as soon as we’re able to do so. Your invitation will contain your personalised time to visit us.

At this event, you’ll hear all about Q3 Academy Great Barr, our systems and processes, and have the opportunity to ask any questions that you may have. We’ll also confirm the transition arrangements for your child, as they’ll have the opportunity to join us for some sessions before they break up for summer to get accustomed to Academy life, and get to know some of their peers.

September 2020 Transition doesn’t stop in September, your child will have a Personal Tutor who’ll keep a close eye on how they’re settling in. Your child’s Personal Tutor is your first port of call for any enquiries at the Academy, and they’ll be in touch if there are any concerns.

Please note that the Academy will not be able to answer questions related to admissions or appeals, as this is handled by Sandwell Admissions, so you’ll need to contact them directly. If you do have questions related to a child joining us in September 2020 then please get in touch here.
