A successful transition event
On the Monday of the half term holiday we held a ‘7 for year 7’ event; ‘Stand and Deliver’. This was an opportunity for our prospective students to meet our staff and make new friends before joining us in September.
Whilst the year 6 children went into performance workshops to rehearse, their families were taken on a tour of the school by our year 7 transition mentors – they also had to hunt and identify pictures on the route. After a Question and Answer session, we all got together for a delicious lunch.
In the afternoon, families enjoyed performances from their year 6 children which included dance, drama, a magic show, steel band and circus skills. It was a lovely day and comments from parents included; ‘It was great!’, ‘Everything I wanted to know was covered’, and ‘It was good to hear about ‘The Bridge’ for next year’s year 7.’
The next of our ‘7 for year 7’ is the Family Fun Night scheduled for Thursday 24th May.
