Year 6 Transition

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.

Our transition programme includes visits to every primary school, by the Year 7 Guidance Manager- Mrs Ahern & our KS3 Progress Director Ms L Burnett.  We also offer a full day of induction to all students where they get to meet tutors and experience taster lessons. If you have any questions regarding your child’s transition, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Ahern at the school, either by phone 02380 269026 or email


Students who require additional transition also have opportunities to come in for a morning with the learning support department, as well as tailored 1:1 visits, and an invitation to our unique '627' Programme. The '627' programme is a 2 day transition programme for students who need some extra support with key subjects to ensure that they are secondary ready.   Invitations will be sent to selected students in June, with the programme taking place some time in July.
