Year 6 transition
Thank you for choosing Fullhurst Community College as the secondary school for your child. We know that it is arguably one of the most important decisions parents make; choosing Fullhurst means that you have given your child the very best chance of succeeding both academically and in the wide variety of vocational, sporting, arts, leadership and other opportunities we offer to our students.
To best prepare for the move from primary to secondary school, over the next few months we will be doing a lot of transition work. This involves a number of events which have been designed based on the feedback received from year 6 parents and students over a number of years and include a number of opportunities to meet with Fullhurst staff.
Visits to primary schools (April toJune)
We visit all students at their primary school. This visit gives every student the opportunity to ask our teachers any questions they might have about life at Fullhurst, as well as allowing our Head of Year 7 to talk to all Year 6 teachers.
One-to-one meetings (April to June)
All parents will be invited to attend a one-to-one meeting with a senior member of staff at Fullhurst. This will give you an opportunity to ask any questions you might have regarding the transition to Fullhurst and for our staff to explain, in more depth, the transition processes and our expectations.
Transition evening (Monday 3 July 6.00pm-7.30 pm)
This event for parents and students happens the evening before the Transition Day. Here both parents and students have the opportunity to meet their year 7 form tutor, have a tour of the school and ask any further questions they might have about Fullhurst. From past experiences, we know this makes transition day a less daunting experience.
Transition day (Tuesday 4 July)
This day, which we will write to you about separately, is when students have the chance to spend the whole day at Fullhurst. They will get to sample normal lessons, meet other students from their form group and find out more about life at Fullhurst.
We look forward to meeting you and your child during the transition process. If you have any queries, please contact main reception on 0116 282 4326.
