Dyson Perrins Church of England Academy takes students from across Malvern plus surrounding towns and villages. It is typical for us to have 20+ feeder primary schools in any year group.
Dyson Perrins has a long-standing and well-developed relationship with our feeder primary schools. All primary schools in Malvern are invited bring their Year 5 pupils to visit us for a day and many pupils will visit our site to take part in the variety of primary school events we offer.
Once we know which Year 6 pupils will be joining us, members of our Senior Leadership Team and SEN Department will visit the pupils in their primary schools. Year 6 pupils will all attend our induction day in July and some students will be identified for additional visits. We prioritise collecting as much information as possible about each student, both academic and pastoral, in order to support their transition and accelerate their progress on joining us.

Parents of Year 5 & 6, and those looking to transfer in other year groups, are encouraged to book a personal tour of the school to see us in action on a typical school day. Please contact reception on 01684 564751 to book a convenient time.
