Transition Day Introduction

For the first time in nearly three years, we are very excited to be planning for a Transition Day that isn’t virtual!  Our Transition Day is always a vibrant event and one that the whole school community thoroughly enjoys.  We can’t wait to welcome our new students through the doors of our Historic school building.  Crossley Heath has such an amazing and rich history dating back to 1600.  Our new students are soon to be a part of that history too!

As part of the ‘settling in’ support for our new Year 7 students, we have a fabulous group of current Year 7 students who have formed a Transition Support Team.  They will be on hand during the transition period to help give guidance and reassurance to new students as they get used to their new school community.  The Transition Support Team are looking forward to meeting new Year 7 students on their Transition Day.  For now, they have put together a student support letter to read ahead of their transition, and a short video clip that address some of the common worries Year 6 children will have as they prepare to start at secondary school.
