Marshland High School

Transition From Year 6 to Year 7

Year 6 Transition – September 2021

Welcome to Marshland High School!

The information here is to help you and your child transition from Primary to Secondary Education with us ready for September 2022. 


Year 6 Transition Information

Despite the uncertain times that we are all experiencing at present, we want to reassure all prospective parents and students with regard to some aspects of you joining us.

Due to these unforeseen circumstances we have yet to receive Government guidance as to whether it will be possible for us to hold our usual two days of induction in the Summer term, but if we can, we will. We will update this page regularly with additional information as it becomes available.

For further information regarding your child joining us in September more details will be provided as soon as we have them, but if you have any concerns or queries not addressed in our letter, please direct them to Mrs Swinburn, Assistant Head for KS3 by email on s.swinburn@marshlandhigh.co.uk

Any new advice, information or news will be posted to these pages, so please refer to these pages regularly over the coming weeks.

We look forward to welcoming your child to Marshland High School.
 

Transition Work

BE AWESOME, GO BIG - YEAR 6 TRANSITION PROJECT

Be Awesome, Go Big is a package to help Year 6 students transition into Year 7. It can be used by students and parents at home or in school with teachers in class. It is designed to be motivational, helpful and reassuring and to help young people feel valued, loved, encouraged and equipped for the journey ahead.

The resources are based on bestselling children’s books You Are Awesome by Matthew Syed and Go Big: The secondary school survival guide by Matthew Burton. 

We can highly recommend the books as great reads for both students and parents.
