Students at The Burgess Hill Academy have produced
information for year 6 students about transition to secondary school. The
finished publication was shared with local primary school students this summer and
has been welcomed by students, parents and schools alike. The students
have written the publication whilst attending a lunchtime club at the academy
run by Inkpots, and led by Gill Pawley. Gill is a publications editor by
training and spent many years immersed in the world of book production. Since
starting Inkpots, over five years ago, Gill has run hundreds of workshops and
helped create the strong community we have.
"During their first year at the Burgess Hill Academy, the students in our group grew in confidence and kept a note of the things that helped them to adapt from primary to secondary school. Mr Francies encouraged them to put a leaflet together during one of his regular visits to our meetings - and we're really proud of the resulting material." Gill Pawley
“I have been so fortunate as Principal that Inkpots wanted to come and build on the excellent work they have done in Primaries, at my academy. The students produce amazing work in a really supportive environment. I am doubly fortunate that the girls have produced a well written and invaluable guide for year 6 about to make the transition to year 7. Excellent work.” Jon Francies, Principal.
