Transition 2023

On this page you will find all the relevant information regarding your transition process into Year 7. We are very much looking forward to welcoming you all in September! 

Welcome to our Year 6 Transition page where you can access resources and information about the transition from Primary to Secondary School. We recognise that the move from Primary School to Secondary School is a big one - often for parents and carers as much as for the students. Our positive and well-established links with Primary Schools in the local area and beyond will allow us to create a seamless transition for your child, ensuring that students entering Year 7 settle in quickly and with ease. We also have an effective pastoral system where we have dedicated members of staff who will look after your child throughout their school life every step of the way.
