transition to year 7
Thinking of joining us next September? This page provides information to help you choose your next school, or prepare for your start if you have already chosen us.
Transition from Year 6 into Year 7 is the start of your child’s journey through secondary education and beyond. We look forward to the students beginning their seven year journey with us. Our pastoral and SEN teams work closely to ensure that this transition is as seamless and enjoyable as possible.
Transition is overseen by our assistant head teacher responsible for engagement and wellbeing and the head of year 7. We work throughout the year to plan transition and this work is visible during the summer term when our staff carry out a programme of visits to our main partner primary schools.
Because of our semi-rural, geographically large catchment area, we draw on a number of partner primaries that is significantly above the national average: 39, to be precise! To help support a smooth transition we give students and their parents/carers the opportunity to visit Stokesley School, meeting key staff and learning about school life during the summer term. This is especially useful for students who we may not be able to visit in their primary setting.
Year 6 students participate in a three day induction programme in July, where they get to experience lessons, learn school systems and meet school staff. Students with additional needs are supported by our Learning Support team, and have the opportunity to visit school outside of the induction days.
Each year, in the summer term, we host uniform sizing events in school where parents/carers can bring children to school, try on uniforms and meet key members of staff.
We are happy to accommodate visits by Year 6 students and their parents/carers outside of standard induction, please contact email@example.com for more information.
These videos were created for our September 2021 entrants, however, parents will still find them useful if you are planning on joining us in September 2024.
