YEAR 6 transition


Transition is a very exciting time for year 6 pupils. It marks the end of an era at primary school and the beginning of new adventures at secondary school. No doubt there will be nerves mixed in with the excitement - this is completely natural for pupils and parents alike!

We have set up this page for this very unique year of transition so that you have a one stop shop for all things transition; booklets that will help you prepare, all letters and correspondence that is sent out, numerous virtual items such as video introductions from teachers, pupils and a virtual tour of the school. Over the coming weeks all these resources will be uploaded for you to help you in your transition to our school. We hope you enjoy them and that they help you feel part of our school community.

If you have any queries or questions, please do email transition@sjcs.org.uk and we will get back to you!

We are all looking forward to getting to know you and working with you over the coming years.

year 6 information evening

We held a Year 6 information evening session online on Wednesday 7th July at 6pm–6:30pm.

The evening was an important event when senior staff gave some information about the school, the curriculum and the opportunities that lie ahead for your child.

If you missed the meeting or want to recap on some of the notes, you can download the presentation slides below.
