Entry to Year 7 in September 2022

Welcome to Year 6 Transition 2022

We have created a Year 6 Transition Site to provide you and your child with lots of important and useful information to support their transition from primary to secondary. The site has videos from our Senior Leadership Team, Head of Year and our Transition Lead, along with a virtual tour which we are sure your child will enjoy. Previous communication already sent to you can be found within Parent Information, and we will post up to date messages on the Noticeboard. The transition activities page will have a variety of summer projects to further support your child’s move up to Arnold Hill.
