We visit every year 6 student during the summer term to speak to their teachers and find out about them as individuals. We hold a Discovery Day during the summer term for year 6 students to come to Maidenhill, try out a variety of lessons and meet some of their new teachers. We establish a strong link with parents by welcoming them to an information evening in July and then again in September when our year 7 students have been with us for a few weeks. During their first few weeks at Maidenhill, each year 7 class has a student guide to and from lessons so they can easily find their way to class. As well as academic parents’ evenings, we hold a special ‘meet the tutor’ evening for parents of year 7s in the autumn term. YEAR 6/7 TRANSITION OUR TRANSITION PROGRAMME IS DESIGNED TO MAKE THE CHANGE FROM PRIMARY TO SECONDARY SCHOOL AS ENJOYABLE AND AS SMOOTH AS POSSIBLE.
