Transition from Year 6

Your journey to joining us

As well as feeling excited about the move to secondary school, it is perfectly natural to feel a little nervous. Here at Fitzharrys, we do lots of things to make sure that you are happy and confident about joining your great new school.

First of all you will receive a Transition letter in the post welcoming you to Fitzharrys and letting you know about some of the key highlights you can look forward to in the run up to September. The first event in our Transition calendar is our key transition staff visiting you at primary school, where we will get to know you and you can ask us any questions you may have. 

Next you will visit us for Transition Tea, where you will get to meet staff and students from other schools who will be moving up to Fitzharrys with you.

Later on in the year, you will come to Fitzharrys for Transition Day. You will meet our staff and the other students in your form group, find out which of our four Houses you are in, familiarise yourself with the school site and participate in a full timetable of classes, giving you a taste of what learning at Fitzharrys will be like. Students bring their parents and carers back to Fitzharrys later that same day for Transition Evening, where you can share all you have done in the day.

Some of you will be able to visit us on extra days to ensure you feel really confident about joining Fitzharrys.

All this means that, by the time September arrives, you will be feeling more confident and getting excited about joining us. We're very excited to meet you too, and can't wait to see you soon!
