Year 6 into 7 Transition Support for September 2021

We have created a range of resources to help Year 6 students prepare for when they join us in September.  We do hope that you and your child will find them useful as an induction to the School.

Welcome Letter

We sent all new students a letter outlining the activities and support we are offering to help with transition.  Please click here to access it.

Year 7 Handbook 

The School Handbook contains a range of information about the School. All parents and students should read this before starting in September. 

The Year 7 Handbook for 2021-2022 will be published in due course.  In the meantime, please click on the image below to read the handbook that covered the 2020-2021 intake of Year 7s.

Virtual Tour of the School

We have created a virtual tour of the school which will allow students to familiarise themselves with the layout of the school before they join.  You can view the virtual tour as a single video which takes less than 17 minutes, or watch five shorter mini tours as and when you have time.  To view the full length video, please click it below.

The mini tours can be viewed by downloading a PowerPoint presentation.  Please click here to download it.  Alternatively, if you do not have PowerPoint, you can click the images below to access the relevant mini tour on Vimeo.
