We know that secondary school is a big change from primary school and we will work with all our new families to help you settle in.

You probably have lots of questions for us and you and your child might be feeling anything from excited to nervous- all of this is normal and everyone is feeling the same way.

To help you settle in you will have the opportunity to join a coffee morning, which is for both parents and new pupils. You can ask any questions about secondary school to our staff and current year 7 students.

Our staff will meet all of your child's current year 6 teachers to get to know how we can best support their individual learning and pastoral needs.

All students will also have a chance to visit the school before September (we will get in touch with you as soon as we know what this will look like).

We have also produced these guides to help for now:
