Year 6 to 7 Transition
The transition from primary school to secondary school is one of the biggest and most exciting milestones a child will experience in their life, and one they will always remember. For this reason, it is crucial that schools get this transition right.
We are welcoming students to Tomlinscote from over 30 primary schools this year and continually endeavour to foster meaningful and mutually supportive relationships with these establishments. The mark of a successful transition is so dependent upon clear communication with these primary schools and the continued strong relationships we have built.
If you have any questions regarding transition to Tomlinscote then please contact Ms Helene Livesey (Assistant Principal-Transition and Progression) at the school on 01276 709050 (ext. 246)

For upcoming Year 6 Tomlinscote students:
We are incredibly excited that you will be continuing your educational journey with us at Tomlinscote. We look forward to meeting you this year in your primary schools when we come for our transition visits in the summer term. Unfortunately, due to the extension of government Covid-19 restrictions, we are unable to host our planned Year 6 Induction Day this year which was due to take place on Wednesday 30th June 2021. Instead, we look forward to welcoming you on your new Induction Day which will take place on Friday 3rd September 2021.
See the documents and links below for information about Tomlinscote and joining Year 7.
Please take a look at the video below which we have put together with our current Year 7s this summer. They wanted to articulate how they felt in your shoes this time last year and how they feel now, a year on, settled and happy in Year 7 at Tomlinscote.
