Tollbar Academy Year 7 Tea Party. Caroline Wardle and Deb Appleby, from Springfield Primary Academy, catch up with their former pupils who are now Year 7 Tollbar students. They are: (L-r) Kayson Robertson, Martha Marshall, Grace Bromley, George Plumpton and Scarlett Thompson.


Students and teachers chatted over a cup of tea as Tollbar Academy held its Annual Year 7 Tea Party.

The event gives the new Year 7 students at the Academy a chance to catch up with their former Primary School Teachers to show them how they are getting on in their new school.

George Plumpton, a former pupil at Springfield Primary Academy, was happy to share his work with his Primary Teachers. "I have moved up to Tollbar now but it's really nice to see them. They have been asking what we have been working on and looking at our books. We were asking what was happening at our old school."

Rachael Crompton, a Teacher at Welholme Academy, said: "The children seem really happy and settled. It is very interesting to see their books and what they are working on so I can take it back to my current Year 6 pupils."

St Mary's Catholic Primary School Teacher Teresa Rouse said: "It is so nice to see the pupils again. They seem to be settling in here really well."
