Parents: Year 6 to 7 Transition

Updated: Fri 18 Aug 2017   Share: Share on facebookShare on TwitterShare on MySpaceShare by Email

At The Bulmershe we pride ourselves on providing our new students and parents with a smooth and successful transition from primary school to secondary school. We will write to all of our prospective parents after Easter, welcoming you to our school and confirming the details of the transition process.

In May the 'Transition Team' visit your child’s primary school. We work very closely with your child's Year 6 teacher to ensure that we receive all the required information. At the larger feeder primary schools, we give Year 6 students the opportunity to hear more about the life at The Bulmershe School.

All students will spend at least one whole day at The Bulmershe School in June. They will have the opportunity to make new friends and attend new and exciting lessons. Students often feel much more confident about the move after their 'Induction Day' has taken place.

Our 'Rising Year 7' evening in June is your opportunity as parents to come and see a presentation about the transition process and hear how your child will be taught at The Bulmershe School. It is also an opportunity to meet key members of staff who will be there to support your child while they take this important milestone.

I hope that you are able to find all the relevant information on our school website, however if you do have any further questions then please do not hesitate to contact our transition co-ordinator, Leanne Harris on:

Finally, thank you for taking the time to look at our Transition information and I look forward to meeting you and your child when you arrive with us at The Bulmershe School.
