Year 7 Induction Day – 27th June
We are looking forward to meeting all our new Year 7 pupils on the Induction Day. This will take place on 27th June. Pupils should arrive at school at 8.35am in the Junior School uniform and make their way to the Sports Hall.
Moving up to secondary school can be very scary and worrying for some students, but here at Toynbee we work hard to make it as easy and happy as possible. Our aim is for all of Year 6 to make a successful transition into secondary school life, and to become part of the school community where they can achieve their full potential and make excellent academic progress.
A message to our new year 7 pupils
We are looking forward to meeting you when we visit your junior school during the Summer term. We hope to be able to answer all of your questions about secondary school and tell you about our exciting plans for the new year 7 at Toynbee. WE CAN'T WAIT TO MEET YOU!
A message to our new Parents
Our key priority is to ensure that your child makes the transition from Primary to Secondary school with maximum enjoyment and minimum anxieties. Therefore, your communication with us, and vice versa, is really important, and we encourage and welcome you to get in touch with us to clarify any concerns that you may have so that we can answer your questions and provide you with reassurance.
We are working very closely with the Primary and Junior schools to get both essential and helpful information to support your child through this transition period.
We will be undertaking a number of activities to support your child with their move to Toynbee.
If you have any questions regarding your child's transition to Toynbee please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
22nd or 23rd June Year 6 Parents Induction Evening Parents will be invited to Toynbee to meet with key staff, including your child’s tutor. The date you are invited will depend on which tutor group your child is placed in.
