Secondary Transition

Dear Parent/Carer

We are very excited to welcome you and your child to Barnwell School.

Transition from primary school is a very exciting but also nervous time in a young life. At Barnwell we endeavour to make the transition as smooth as possible, by providing plenty of bespoke opportunities for Year 6 students to integrate into our community.

From the moment you accept us as the school of choice for your child, we work closely with the primary schools to get to know them as an individual and provide the appropriate level of support in place to help them settle quickly. If information is needed about free school meals, click here.

This transition process does not stop in the September of Year 7 however. We continue to work with all of our students until they become confident and independent citizens.

Kind regards,

Mr T Fitzpatrick
