Year 6 to 7 Transition 2024

Welcome to The Wavell School!

Year 7 September 2024 Admissions:

Waiting List Now Available

Transferring from Primary to Secondary School  is an exciting time during which the children have the opportunity to do many new things, meet and make new friends, work with new teachers and explore some new subjects but it can also be an unsettling time for both children and their families. 

In order to help you find the relevant information within our school website we have created this page as a central hub for all Year 6 to 7 transition information.

Please take the time to browse our website. Click on the buttons below to find out more about some key information to get you started.

Induction Process

Our transition programme aims to give our new Year 7 students and their families the opportunity to find out all about the Wavell and to begin to feel confident about joining us in September. 

Contact with our new Year 7 children's current schools will be made after the Easter holidays by Mrs Lisa Hogg (Deputy Headteacher), Mrs Samantha McKie (Assistant Headteacher) and other senior staff.

For pupils who attend a Primary school where very few pupils are transferring to Wavell, we hope to organise a visit to The Wavell School in May/June to enable them to meet other pupils who are in a similar position as well as having an opportunity to ask questions about Wavell and how a secondary school works. 

We are planning on holding Induction Days on Wednesday 3rd and Thursday 4th July 2024 when Year 6 pupils who are joining us will spend the days meeting other Year 6 pupils from different schools as well as following a timetabled programme of lessons and activities. In the evening of Thursday 4th July, we will hold our Year 6 Parents’ Induction Evening.

We asked our Year 7 students what they like about Wavell and what helped them most in the transition to secondary school...
