Transition from Primary School

Transition 2020

Good morning,

This week Mrs Hodgkinson has focussed her assembly around some of our school values with a particular focus on resilience through the potato challenge.

If you are happy to share, we would love to see a photo or video of your child’s attempt/success in the potato challenge and you can send these to Mrs Hodgkinson at

Here is the link to the assembly:

We would also like to make you aware of a small amendment we have made to our uniform guidance. We have adapted the policy to include the following in the trousers/skirt section:

Alternatively, students are permitted to wear black culottes or black school shorts. Shorts should be tailored (not P.E or cargo-style shorts) and knee-length. Formal shorts usually have two front pockets and loop holes for a belt. 

​We have also published images of what items are permitted for all our parents for further clarity.

Finally, thank you to those who have returned the admission and Dear Form Tutor forms that were included in your welcome pack. If you have not had chance to do so yet, we would appreciate you returning those to us at your earliest convenience.

I hope you all have a lovely weekend,

Mrs Whitehead,

Assistant Headteacher



Mrs Hodgkinson has created a series of assemblies which we will be sending out over the next few weeks as we welcome your child into our school community. The theme of the first assembly is ‘crossing bridges’ and can be found at the link below.

Crossing Bridges

The Prime Minister has stated his ambition that all children will return to school in September for the start of the new academic year. We are very keen for this to be the case, but we need to wait for the publication of the government’s guidance before we can confirm details for the start of the new term. Students are due to return to school on Thursday 3rd September 2020 and we will confirm arrangements with you as soon as we are in a position to do so. Whatever procedures need to be in place, we are committed to including activities to support our new Year 7 students to settle in and to replicate some of the process that they have unfortunately missed as we haven’t been able to hold the transition days.

Tutor groups have been created and we are in the process of allocating form tutors. Once finalised, we will contact you to introduce your child’s tutor. Subject leaders have been working on a range of stimulating activities for your child to complete over the summer as an introduction to their subject and you can also expect to receive these in the post before the end of term.

In the meantime, we hope you enjoy the assembly and have a lovely weekend.

Kind regards,

Jonathan Fawcett


We have put together some guidance to support you from home.  We have also created a series of videos to watch together at your convenience which are designed to answer common questions parents and children often have.

I hope you find them useful.
