Email to Year 6 re. Tours w.c. 12 July and Test Consent Form.pdf

We are really looking forward to meeting our new Year 7s in September 2021. It's been a very strange and confusing time for us all and I'm sure the move to Secondary School can seem a bit daunting at the best of times. 

Unfortunately, due to current restrictions we had to cancel our Transition Day, but we hope you found the Year 6 Webinar useful; if you didn't join you will be able to see a recording (the link will be uploaded after the event). Below you can see some videos from staff and students, including Mr Stone, who will be Head of Year 7 next year, and some of our current Year 7 students. We hope you and your child will enjoy watching them. 

We have also put together a parent's information book & student guide for you to have a look through before starting in September.

If you have any questions please contact our Admissions Team on
