Year 6 Transition

Year 6 Transition

September 2020- Year 7 Induction

All of our new year 7 pupils will be starting school on Wednesday 2nd September.
Year 7 will be the only year group in School and so we can further support their transition.
Pupils are to attend in full school uniform and arrive at school by 8.30am. Pupils will enter through doors near to our visitors car park. Staff will be around to direct pupils on the day.

Please see the the letter below for further guidance on our plans and expectations. Details on the school uniform can be found in the transition booklet accessed from this page or on our website.

To all our new students and their families, welcome to our school community.  We look forward to working with you over the next 5 years, providing your child with the best possible educational opportunities.

Due to the Covid-19 restrictions still in place, we have had to review our usual transition arrangements.  Much of our communication with you has been moved online.  We will keep you updated about a formal transition day as soon as we are able.  We want to reassure you that we will do all we can to support you through this transition period.

If you have any questions about your child’s admission to the school, please contact Mrs Stonehouse –
