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 2023
Welcome to Westfield School!
During March, we send you a letter welcoming you into our school community. Enclosed with this letter are 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 these events, so that you can get to know your new school and meet new friends:
- Tuesday 20 June, or
- Wednesday 21 June
In June, you will be invited to one of these evenings, depending on which 'hall' you will be joining.
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.
- Tuesday 11 July and
- Wednesday 12 July
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.
In the meantime, you can browse our website for information about travelling to school and what uniform and equipment you need. You can also find lots of information about school in the section for current parents and students.
