Year 6 Transition

Welcome to Dormston

A very warm welcome to all parents/carers whose child has been offered a place here at Dormston School and who will be joining us in September 2024.   We hope you and your families are all well. A welcome letter will be sent out shortly along with some forms which will need completing. We would be grateful if these could be completed and returned to our school office by Friday 15 March 2024.

Shortly, our transition team, Mrs A Beer and Mrs K Beer will be visiting primary schools to find out about our up and coming Year 7’s. This visit will allow your child to meet some of our staff before their Induction days which are scheduled for Tuesday 2 and Wednesday 3 July 2024.

Alongside our induction, we are committed to supporting your child’s move into Secondary School. We will be uploading information in this section of our website to support with this process. The information will help answer most of your questions as we aim to allay any worries or concerns.

A full list of information will be available by the beginning of July 2024. You will also be provided with a parent information pack.

On Monday 1 July 2024 there will be a Parents’ Evening starting at 6.30pm. During this evening you will have an opportunity to meet key members of staff associated with Year 7. We will be writing to you next term outlining the detail of both the Induction days and the Parents’ Evening.  

We would like you to know that on the first day back at school in September (Tuesday 3 September 2024) we will be holding a special Year 7 induction where school will only be open to Year 7 only.  On this day, Year 7 will spend time with key staff and peer mentors and will be involved in activities where they can continue to get to know their form group. Students will need to bring their bags and equipment, further details to follow.
