Year 6 To 7 Transition

Offers will be made by Surrey County Council for admission to 鶹ý in September 2024 on the 1st March 2024.   Click here for more information about admissions to 鶹ý and the appeals process.

We want our students to feel ready, prepared, and confident to join Year 7 at 鶹ý.  We have strong partnerships with our local primary schools, to ensure curriculum and pastoral continuity. 

We have a dedicated transition team lead by an Assistant Principal including the Progress Leader for Year 7 and SENDCo. We work together with our local primary schools to ensure a smooth transition for students from Primary to Secondary School.  

During the summer term, we have detailed conversations with all Year 6 teachers from our new cohort alongside visiting our new students in their primary schools. This is the beginning of our transition process and enables our new cohort to start to belong to our 鶹ý community.

At the beginning of July, all Year 6 students are invited to an Induction Day. They will meet our key staff and their new peers and begin to settle in to our routines of learning and high expectations.  

For parents, we hold an Information Evening on the same day as the main Induction Day for students. This starts an important relationship between the school and home.  Students are encouraged to attend with their families, and there is an opportunity to take part in a more informal question and answer session.

For students who may be more anxious about the move to secondary school, we run further opportunities, such as SEND sessions, or bespoke school tours with a senior leader, to help them settle and feel more confident.

We look forward to welcoming you and your child to the 鶹ý community.
