Year 7 Induction Day 6 July 2021 (*Cancelled*):

Unfortunately, due to restrictions not being lifted as planned and concerns about Covid-19, the Government and the Local Authority have suggested approaches that make Induction Day no longer feasible for us to carry out in the safest way possible.

It is with regret therefore that we have had to cancel plans for our Yr7 Induction Day.

We therefore draw your attention to the downloadable documents below which will provide all the information and guidance you and your child require at this time as well as the transition work your son will need to complete before September.

Do please contact the school if you have any queries or concerns regarding your child's Year 6/7 transition.
