Year 6 to Year 7 Admissions

Mrs Smitton (Associate Assistant Principal) and Mrs Orr (Head of Year 7) are responsible for the Induction process for Year 6 students transferring to John Port Spencer Academy.

Please see our Student Admissions Booklet, an information leaflet from Derbyshire County Council and a map of John Port Spencer Academy below:

If you require any printed copies, please let us know and this can be arranged for you if you email 

Usually, we would invite students and parents in to the academy for an Open Evening. This year however, due to COVID-19, we are unable to provide this opportunity. Therefore we will soon be providing you with a video introduction to our academy. Please keep checking this page for updates and follow us on social media.


We strive to ensure that all students are happy at John Port Spencer Academy and a successful transition into Year 7 is a key part of this. If you have any questions about your child’s transition into Year 7, please email and we will be happy to help.
