Year 6 to 7 Transition

Welcome to our Year 6 Transition Page

Here you can access resources and information about the transition from primary to secondary school. We recognise that the move from primary school to secondary school is a big one – often for parents and carers as much as for the pupils!

Our extensive transition programme allows us to make the process a positive and exciting experience for our pupils. We will do all we can to allow Year 6 pupils to gain a real insight into being a Houstone School Pupil. Our positive links with primary schools in the local area and beyond, will allow us to create a seamless transition for your child ensuring that pupils entering Year 7 settle in quickly and with ease.

Click the link to read our Transition Welcome Pack. In addition to this, you have been emailed a more comprehensive Transition Handbook, this contains key information essential for this process.

We want to offer as many opportunities for pupils and parents to be able to ask any questions, put faces to names and feel welcomed into the Houstone community. If you have any further questions, please contact me on [email protected].

Kind regards,

Ms Taylor | Head of Year 7 & Transition Lead
