Glossopdale School

Year 6/7 Transition 2021


A huge welcome to all year 6s - the future Year 7s of Glossopdale School - September 2021!

As this year has presented us with some extraordinary circumstances, some of your transition will be online; like so many things at the moment.  This will begin with your Zoom sessions every Monday, beginning on the 19th of April.  We hope you will find these useful in building your confidence and introducing you to some of our vision and values at Glossopdale.  Your joining instructions have been sent to your parents by e-mail and they need to sign you up to attend.

The links below will take you to the first of our transition films which we prepared for students last year.  In them, I take you on the first tour of our school building and show you some of the classrooms for the subjects that year 6s are often very excited to be taking at secondary school; using equipment that you might not have had the chance to experience at primary school.

In future weeks, you will get to meet some other members of staff who will be taking a key role in your move up to Glossopdale School and they will give you lots more useful facts and information to help you feel more familiar and secure about your transition to us.

If the opening up of our country goes smoothly, we hope to welcome you into school for a whole day of Induction on Friday 2nd July; but will need to wait and see if this will be possible nearer the time.

We are really looking forward to meeting you in person, but - in the meantime - we hope you enjoy the films.

Stay safe, be kind and enjoy the rest of the school year as year 6s.
