Due to the uncertainty that surrounds us and restrictions on movements and daily life transition this year will look and feel somewhat different to usual. However, we are delighted to be able to offer you an amended transition day and a summer camp – so there are still lots of opportunities to come in and meet us all. Please see information regarding both of these activities below. Please don’t worry if you aren’t able to come into school for the transition activities or the Summer camp, we understand that every home situation is different and it is for this reason that we have also been putting together some remote activities too.

Virtual Tour of the School
Please do take a look at the virtual tour; this is in 3 parts with a fun quiz at the end of each instalment. We are releasing each instalment a week at a time so do make sure you watch and take part in all 3 quizzes. There is also an introduction to the Pastoral staff; House staff and form tutors.
Our fantastic Year 7 and 8 pupils have put together a lovely message welcoming our new Year 7 group.

We will be asking your children to complete a series of transition tasks. They won’t be big or demanding tasks, but it will be something to get them thinking about their move to secondary school.
