Welcome Year 6! 

We are thrilled you will be joining us in September 2021 for five wonderful years of learning and experiences all focused on our three core values of commitment, creativity and community; our 3Cs. 

Between now and July our transition team will spend time getting to know you so that we can support your 'transition' from primary to secondary education - what an exciting time!

We will spend time with your primary teachers and support staff, arrange to speak to your parents and you (the most important) so that you can share with us what you're most looking forward to about joining our school.

To help us get in touch with your families please ask your parents/guardians to complete the form below with their contact details.


Year 6 Transition Appointments

We are pleased to inform parents of pupils joining us from Year 6 that appointments are now open to book a transition phone call appointment.  

Appointments are available up to Friday 25th June 2021.

Please use the 15 minute appointment to ask the member of the transition team any questions you have about your child's transition to our school.
