Transition from Primary to Secondary

 

Student Admission Form

All parents/carers were sent an e mail on Friday 22nd May asking them to complete an online student admission form.  If you have not received this, please contact school to ensure that we have the correct e mail address. 

 

Supporting Primary to High School Transition

We would like to make you aware of a free online course for parents and children.  For many children and parents, the transition from primary to secondary school is a worrying time. This short free course provides proven techniques for making the transition easier for both parents and children.

Supporting Transition in Maths - 'Secondary Ready' from Numerise

Secondary Ready is a free course within Numerise that is designed to prepare Year 6 learners for starting Year 7 in September.

Being up-to-speed in maths when starting secondary school is really important. Things like core number skills are really vital to make sure that when they start moving on to more challenging concepts, they have a solid foundation with no gaps in their knowledge.

Connecting with us through social media

We understand that the transition to high school can be a worrying time and often parents have questions or concerns . To help with this we have set up a group for parents/carers through our school Facebook page. You can join the group using this link and answering a small number of security questions.
