Year 6 Transition

We are very excited to launch our new Transition website.  If your child is due to join us in September 2020, please email with your child's name and DOB if you have not yet received login details for this site.

A Supported Transition

Our transition programme begins in Year 6 and continues until the start of Year 8. Our close relationship with local Primary Schools enable us to identify, understand and support the unique strengths and needs of every child. A comprehensive programme of workshops, activities, events, and competitions take place all year, including opportunities for primary pupils to visit Woldgate School and use our facilities and equipment.

There are many opportunities for pupils and parents to meet our dedicated and experienced team of Year 7 form tutors throughout the Transition process, welcoming pupils and parents into the Woldgate Community.

Why is supported transition important?

  • To develop your child's confidence to preapre them for secondary school.
  • To ignite your child's enthusiasm for the new subjects and opportunities they will have at Woldgate School.
  • To get to know our teachers and staff, and to find their way around the school site with confidence.

Please read through the following pages, they are full of advice and information for supporting your child through the step up to Woldgate:
