Year 6 Transition 2021

Information for Year 6 Students, Parents and Carers

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. 

We are planning an exciting programme of activities for our Transition Day on Friday 2 July when we hope to see all the Year 6s who will be joining us in September.  Full details will be emailed home and to our primary school colleagues.

We've also filmed messages from key staff introducing themselves and tours of the school which you can view below. 

In April our new parents and carers were sent an admissions pack with a number of forms to complete as part of the registration process. You can find copies of all the forms at the end of this webpage.

If you have any questions please contact our Admissions Team on
