Virtual Open Evening

Due to COVID-19, we held a Virtual Year 6 Open Evening as we were unable to welcome everyone into the Academy.

During the event a series of presentations were shared.

We hope you enjoy these short introductions into the many aspects of NDA that your child could be involved in, if you choose NDA as a first choice school for your son/daughter.

If you have any further queries please do not hesitate to contact us [email protected]

Admission Application Deadline 31st October 2020.

Transition is a time of change. As we pass through the various stages of life we experience many times of transition. For students, it means moving up to secondary school. Others may change a job or take on new responsibilities or a new role. These are all examples of transition.

Transition is a natural part of growing up and of maturing. Handled well, it makes us stronger people. But when it is surrounded by uncertainty or negative reactions, it can make us most unhappy.

Staff at North Durham Academy work hard to plan, prepare and support students ensuring that transition to secondary school goes as smoothly as possible. Please see a copy of our Transition Parent Handbook.

Throughout the academic year we work closely with our direct primary schools to ensure that all primary pupils visit the Academy to experience a flavour of what life would be like if they attended North Durham Academy.

Key people to help your successful move to NDA, Mrs O'Keeffe - Assistant Principal, Mr Lee - Leading academic & social aspects of transition & Mrs S Norman - Head of SEND.
