Welcome Year 6
Welcome to our Year 6 to 7 Transition Mini Site
Dear Parent/ Carer and new Year 7 Students
I hope this letter finds you and your family safe and well.
Usually, at this point in the summer term, I would be visiting you in your primary school, to tell you a little bit about life at secondary school and answer any questions you may have. Unfortunately, that cannot happen this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic, but please rest assured, we are planning carefully and thoroughly for September.
The situation this academic year means we will be running a virtual transition process. More than ever before, we understand that the transition process from primary to secondary can be daunting, but I want to reassure you that we will assist you in any way we can to ensure that all students arrive, whenever that first day may be, excited and fully informed about the next chapter in their education.
There are a series of documents that are listed for review. Once you have read the documents, please could you complete the forms in step 2. Thank you.
Step 1: Documents to read
Step 2: Documents to complete

Our tutor groups here at St Benedict’s are named after Saints. Each saint has been selected because they are a special guardian or protector. Traditionally people see them as symbols of how to live a better life. You will learn more about your tutor Saint when you arrive at St Benedict’s.
In this section you will find all the information you need to know about your new subjects for September 2020.
