Year 6–7 transition support

We believe that a smooth, positive and exciting transition from Year 6 to Year 7 is crucial to the start of each child’s secondary education. The aim of our transition process is for every pupil to move up to Westfield feeling excited, confident and cared for.


Students joining us in September

Welcome to Westfield School!

If you have a place to join us, then this is where your journey starts. We have lots of activities and events planned to help our new students get to know their new school, new teachers and new friends.

What have we got planned?

During March, we send you information welcoming you into our school community. Included with this will be some important forms that you need to complete, plus a welcome booklet with information about the school. You will also have a booklet for you to complete about yourself, so we can get to know you better. 

Then, we invite you to the following events, so that you can get to know your new school and meet new friends:

Welcome evenings 

In June, you will be invited to one of the following evenings:

  • Wednesday 19 June, or
  • Thursday 20 June

During the evening, you will have a tour of the school and meet the form tutors.  Parents and carers will hear from the school leadership team and current students, while our new students spend time meeting their form tutor and group. 

Transition days 

  • Tuesday 9 July, 8.40am - 2.30pm and
  • Wednesday 10 July, 8.40am - 2.30pm

All of our new Year 7 students will spend two days at Westfield School during which you will meet your teachers, find your way around your new school and meet new friends.
