Considering joining TEMA (The East Manchester Academy)? Welcome to our dedicated transition section.

Preparing for the move from primary to secondary school is very exciting but a little daunting. We work really hard to make sure that every child who joins us feels well prepared. The information here should provide all you need to know about TEMA and how we work.

We have also prepared an Essential Guide to TEMA. It’s a useful starting point for contacts, information, advice and guidence, as well as many frequently asked questions.

If you have a specific question or need any help then please contact the academy on our dedicated transition email address:
