Year 6 to 7 Transition


Intake Year 2016

Our aim is to encourage and develop excellence in our students in all aspects of their school life, from
their experiences in lessons to the wide range of extra curricular activities on offer. In recognising our students as individuals we offer a ‘personalised learning approach’ that involves setting high expectations and individualised subject targets for each student. Progress towards these targets is tracked throughout the year and achievement recognised and rewarded.

During the Summer term students are invited to two induction days, when they will take part in various activities and sample lessons to allow them to get to know us and we them.  For 2016 the induction will be held on

  • Wednesday 6th July : 8.30am-2.55pm
  • Thursday 7th July : 8.30am-2.55pm

During the visit students will meet their tutor group and be involved in a varied programme including sampling lessons and team building activities.  This year the students will also complete CAT tests.  There is no preparation that the pupil can do, and please reassure your child that these are nothing to worry about.

There will be a meeting on Thursday 7th July from 7pm to 8pm in the Main Hall for parents/carers and students to meet the Senior Leadership team, Head of Year and tutors.  On Thursday 14th July between 9.30am and 10.30am we will be hosting a coffee morning where you will have a further opportunity to meet the Headteacher, Head of Year and other and other key adults who will be supporting your child during their education.
