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.
A message to our new Year 7 pupils 2020
This year is particularly unsettling for all students, but especially for you, our Year 6 children, who are moving to Toynbee in September. We know that your own schooling and learning has been disrupted and that some of the activities we would normally do to introduce you to what your life will be like at Toynbee have not taken place. We usually visit you during the Summer term in your school to welcome you and introduce ourselves and sadly this hasn't been able to happen this year. Instead, our fantastic students have made some lovely videos for you to watch - just click on the camera icons. WE ARE THINKING OF YOU! & CAN'T WAIT TO MEET YOU!
A message to our new Parents 2020
Our key priority is to ensure that your son/daughter makes the transition from Primary to Secondary school with maximum enjoyment and minimum anxieties, especially during these unprecedented times. Therefore, your communication with us, and vice versa, is really important, and we encourage and welcome you to be 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 son/daughter through this transition period.
Induction evening and Transition Day
These events are scheduled for the 29th and 30th June. Parents and carers will understand that the arrangements for these may well change, in accordance with the Government guidelines, but we will be in touch well in advance with the details of any revised plans.
