Pupils from Primary feeder schools enjoyed a taster day at Cleethorpes Academy taking part in Art, ICT, PE and Music activities.

The Year 5 pupils visited the Academy on a number of days to see for themselves what it will be like for them in a year's time when they graduate to secondary school.
Cleethorpes Academy Assistant Principal Jill Freeman said the pupils had a great day, which helps to take away some of the fear factor they may have on moving up to a larger school.
"Although they still have another year to go at Primary school we feel it really helps them to visit us, not just in Year 6 but in Year 5 too, to get used to some of the staff and students and see for themselves what life at the Academy is like," she said.
"The feedback we had from all of the schools was very positive and the young pupils said they really enjoyed coming along to see us."
