Year 6 transition
I’m sure that you all eagerly opened the email from Leicester City Council today which confirms which secondary school your son or daughter has been allocated for next year. We were delighted that Fullhurst received over 450 applications for our 300 places.
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for choosing Fullhurst Community College as the secondary school for your son / daughter and to welcome you to Fullhurst. It is a very exciting time to join our college. Fullhurst is in the top 200 schools nationally, the Department for Education 2017 Pupil Premium Secondary Regional Champion and 2017 Leicester Mercury School of the Year. Due to the success and popularity of the college, over the next four years we will expand from 1035 to 1500 students. To facilitate this, a new build is being developed in conjunction with Leicester City Council on Ellesmere Road, the site of the old Ellesmere College.
To make sure that your child is happy and confident about his / her transfer to Fullhurst, there will be a number of opportunities to meet staff over the next few months including primary school visits by the Head of Year 7 and invitations to individual meetings with a member of senior staff here at Fullhurst.
Induction evening and induction day are key dates in the transition from year 6 to year 7. Induction evening will take place on Monday 2 July. You and your child will have an opportunity to meet their form tutor, and complete admission forms. On Tuesday 3 July, your son / daughter will spend the day with us experiencing what lessons are like in all of our different faculties. Please make a note of these dates on your calendar, and we will write to you with more information in due course.
Finally, I’d like to encourage you to explore the Fullhurst website and visit this page regularly, as it will be updated with all the transition information you will need over the next few months. I look forward to meeting yourself and your son / daughter soon and if you have any questions regarding transition or would like to arrange an additional visit to Fullhurst, please do not hesitate to contact us on 0116 282 4326.
