Year 6 to 7 Transition

At the first Tutor Evening in October our Year 7 parents said:

My son seems to love everything at the moment. Hopefully this continues.
Kept informed well at every stage. Staff are very friendly and approachable.
A real welcoming feeling to the school, I have no concerns at this time.

I felt that the handover was well done, with several opportunities for the students to familiarise themselves before starting.
My daughter has settled very well and is enjoying it.
My son's transition has been a fantastic experience, the extra visits really helped and I cannot fault the support that has been given.
