Y7 Transition

A warm welcome to all our new year 7 students and their families,

As I'm sure you're aware Y7 transition this year is going to be very different. Due to Covid19 the government has advised all secondary schools that year 6 cannot complete transition during the summer term and as such we have been working hard to adapt.  

We are keeping to the same timings in terms of notifying parents/carers of all information. The only difference is that we have moved the transition days and parent/carers meeting with Head Of Learning and tutor team to September.

We understand that this is a stressful time in terms of the current situation with Covid19, but also the transition to secondary school whilst exciting for many can cause anxiety.  We appreciate your understanding during these challenging times. 

Please check back here for updates.
