Year 6 Transition

We would like to extend a very warm welcome to parents of Year 6 students who will join Hanley Castle in September 2020.

We understand that this process is being made to seem more daunting due to the current situation. Please do not worry. We are all in this together and have plans in place to make the process as smooth as possible for you and the students.

We are currently in communication with all of the Year 6 teachers to find out as much information as we can about our new Year 7s to ensure a smooth start to the year. You should have received  our transition packs from your Primary school, containing lots of activities to complete and return to us. If you have not received these, please complete the Getting to know you sheet and Confidential Record sheet, which are also available to download at the bottom of this page. Please return either by post or by email to KS3@hanleycastlehs.org.uk by 22nd May in addition to contacting your primary school to arrange the collection of your pack if you have not already received one.

Due to the current situation, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the Year 6 Information evening (11th June), Year 6 Pre Transition Day (17th June) and Transition Day (25th June) in the interest of student safety. However, we are still hopeful we will be in a position to meet in person by the end of the summer term. Please keep looking at the website for updates on transition events, in addition to completing the various transition activities in the Hanley passport (included in transition packs).

By the end of June you will receive a second transition pack, detailing your child’s tutor group, what college your child will be in, as well as information regarding transport etc.

However, if you have any questions, queries or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us on the following email office@hanleycastlehs.org.uk

We really look forward to seeing you soon.
