Year 6 Transition

Welcome to the Year 6 area of our website with lots of information and activities to help with your child’s transition to Beacon Hill in September.

Students: You will find some presentations to help you get an idea of the layout of the building,  meet the staff and see what advice our current Year 7 have for you. There are also some challenges that you can try and send to Mrs Saunders. We have included some mindfulness activities that you might like to try.  One HUGE favour you could do for us is to take the literacy tests that are highlighted below. Thank you – looking forward to seeing you all in September.

Parents: Further down there is information about the school, procedures, policies, helpful links and forms. This includes links for uniform ordering, applying for free school meals and clothing vouchers plus our data collection pack.

Information and Data Collection packs have been handed out to YR6 students currently in our Hub and  will be sent out by post to all other YR6 students joining us in September. Please note YR6 Hub students have already completed the IT and Home School Agreement.
