Year 6 to 7 Transition


We fully appreciate that the transition from Primary to Secondary education can be both an exciting and a challenging process for both pupils and parents.

Our transition process is carefully planned to ensure that students are ready for a successful and enjoyable Year 7. Arrangements start at the beginning of Year 6 and build up to a full school visit in the summer term.

If you have any questions regarding transition, at any stage of the process, please do not hesitate to ask. Staff are always available to answer questions at the various events or you can e-mail the school at any time.

Christ the King College is increasingly popular and has become the school of first choice for students from a wide range of primary schools. As well as visiting our local primary schools, we welcome visits to the school from prospective parents from any Primary school. If you would like to arrange a visit or if you have any questions, please contact the school by phone or e-mail. We very much look forward to welcoming you and your child to Christ the King College.
