transition to year 7
29th April 2020 - Due to the unprecedented challenges that Covid-19 presents, our Year 6 to 7 transition planning has been hampered to say the least. We want to make that transition as smooth as possible given the circumstances. Mrs Millett mentioned in her welcome letter last week that we are developing a plan A, B and C. This area of the school website will be updated regularly to give Parent/Carers and Students as much information as possible to keep you aware of updates to key transition planning and to alleviate as much of the anxiety around transition to secondary school as is possible.

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 Mrs Metcalfe, Head of Year 7. We work throughout the year to plan transition and this work is visible during the summer term when Mrs Metcalfe carries out a programme of visits to our main feeder primary schools.
Because of our semi-rural, geographically large catchment area, we draw on a number of feeder 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 two day induction programme in July, where they get to experience lessons, learn school systems and meet school staff. SEN pupils are supported by Mrs McGreal’s SEN team, and have the opportunity to visit school outside of the induction days.
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.
