Introducing students to the academy
Before students start in September, they are invited to Irlam and Cadishead Academy for a two day induction programme. This gives students the opportunity to meet the Year 7 Head of Year, their Form Teacher and other key members of staff.
During the first half term in Year 7, there is a ‘settling in’ evening followed up throughout the year with a parents evening and regular formal progress reports.
Mid-term admissions to Year 7-11
