Year 6/7 transitions - august 2021

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Our transition team have been busy planning our transition programme for 2021, as we prepare for our new Year 7 cohort to begin life at John Ferneley College in August 2021.

Please be assured that your child will receive a smooth transition process from primary to secondary, and our talented team will ensure all students feel happy and prepared to attend John Ferneley.

Throughout May/June 2021 our transition team will be working in the background with your child's current primary school, visiting and requesting key information about all children transferring to us. Head of Year 7 (Miss Meek) and Assistant Head of Year 7 (Miss Shotton) will also be liaising with all teachers of Year 6 to get to know your child/ren a little bit better before they start at John Ferneley.

Please see key transition dates, documents and links below.

We will keep this page updated regularly, so keep checking back for further transition support.
