"Life in all its fullness"

Year 6 to Year 7 Transition

Here at St. Aidan’s Church of England High School our aim is to ensure that the transition from Primary to Secondary school is as smooth as possible for the children and families who are joining our community.


We recognise that the step up to Secondary School is an important change.  We work hard through our Transition and Induction process to get to know all of the students who will be joining, to help them settle quickly and happily into life at St Aidan’s when they enter into Year 7.


For those students who are transitioning to St Aidan’s the key dates to be aware of are:

· Half Day Induction for selected students – Wednesday 19th June

· Primary School visits for selected students – May to July

· Family Fest Day – Saturday 6th July

· Full Day Induction for all students – Thursday 11th July

· Parent/Carer Welcome Evening – Thursday 11th July


Induction Day – Thursday 11th July


All of our new Year 7 students will attend St Aidan’s on Thursday 11th July 2024 for their full Induction Day. During this day our new students will:

· Meet their form tutor and the rest of the students in their form

· Experience a St Aidan’s assembly

· Experience real life lessons

· Enjoy a St Aidan’s lunch

· Have the chance to see the school


Parent/Carer Information Evening – Thursday 11th July

On the evening of our Induction Day, we will welcome parents/carers to an Information Evening during which we will provide useful and practical information to help make the transition to secondary school as smooth as possible.

There will be representatives from uniform suppliers and members of FOSA (Friends of St Aidan’s), along with members of St Aidan’s staff.


Family Fest Day – Saturday 6th July


Our Family Fest day brings together the St Aidan’s community for an afternoon of fun and we extend a very warm welcome to all of our new Year 7 students and families.

The afternoon will include a 5-aside football competition, a pre-loved uniform stall, inflatables, a tombola and raffle, a BBQ and lots of food stalls. We are also hoping to introduce a bake-off and art competition to Family Fest 2024!

We have emailed parents/carers with a link to our student registration form. The email was sent on Wednesday 10th April and we have asked for the form to be completed no later than Friday 26th April.
