Key Dates


To the students, parents and carers of Year 7


We are so excited to welcome you to our community. We are working hard to ensure you have a safe, informative and exciting transition to secondary school!

On Wednesday 6th July, the new Year 7 should come to school at 8:40am for their intake day. They will be greeted at the main entrance and escorted to one of our playgrounds where they will line up in their tutor groups. Parents, and Carers, we know this is an exciting day for you too and we appreciate that walking your child to school and making sure they are okay is important to you. However, can we kindly ask that once your child is safely on school premises, that you move away from the entrance in order to avoid congestion.

Once in tutor groups, the children will be taken to their tutor room where they will spend some time getting to know their classmates, Tutor and co-tutor. They will also attend some lessons and visit the student canteen, The Rookery.  

Students will be dismissed at 2.50pm.



  • On 28th June you will be invited to a 15 minute Transition Interview. 
  •  On Thursday 7th July at 6.30pm, parents and students will be invited to our New Intake Parents Evening.  There will be key speeches from Mrs Manderson, Head Teacher and Mr Todd, Head of Year 7 in the main hall.  You will also meet your child's Tutor.
  •  On Friday 2nd September Year 7s will be in school from 8:40am until 11.30am.  No other students will be in School that day.
  • On Monday 5th September all students return to school full time.
