Transition: Year 6 to Year 7

We are delighted to be starting our journey of working with our new cohort of students for September 2024! Over the coming weeks this page will be updated with key information to support parents and students. The first key piece of information to communicate to you, is that we have a taster day for all new students in July, so you will be able to come and experience your new school. This will take place on Thursday 4th of July 2024. On this day you will have a tour of the school, meet your buddy, experience lessons and much more.
