Welcome to both Walker Riverside Academy and your new School, Grainger.
Our School system is similar to that of a 'house' system. All students belong to either Dobson, Grainger or Stephenson. You are lucky enough to have been selected to join Grainger, so welcome to the Grainger family.
Unfortunately, due to the current circumstances, we are unable to invite you into the Academy in the usual way; however, we have created a number of videos and resources to welcome you, ease your transition and make sure you are happy and ready to join the WRA community in September 2021.
You should have already received your 'Welcome to Walker Riverside Academy 21-22' booklet through the post. Hopefully you have had the opportunity to familiarise yourself with the content before this evening. This guide was designed to explain all the key information you will require to be ready to join us in September; including information regarding dates, curriculum, uniform and much more.
