The transition to Secondary school can be an exciting, and sometimes daunting experience for students and indeed parents. At St Thomas More, we work very closely with our feeder primary schools to ensure that the transition is as smooth as possible. We have a range of transition activities during Year 5 and Year 6 to help students become more familiar with life at St Thomas More and interact with their peers.
The academic transition of students is of great importance to us. Curriculum leaders and teaching staff at St Thomas More work very closely with staff in our primaries to develop a good understanding of the Key Stage 2 curriculum and the abilities of our children. We gather a wide range of information from Year 6 teachers to ensure that the academic transition is as seamless as possible.
We will be running a programme of events for the current Year 6 students, who will be joining us in September 2024, in order to help ease their transition from Primary to Secondary School. We will write to these parents ahead of each event to provide more details. Events to be added below in the Summer Term.
On Wednesday 27th September we will be hosting our annual Open Evening where we will welcome prospective parents/carers and students to our school. This will give them the fantastic opportunity to find out more about our school vision, and speak with our students and staff.
As we draw closer to the end of the academic year below is a letter to inform you of some helpful information about the first week of term, Some important Term dates and some Uniform and equipment Expectations.
