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 have over 20 feeder primary schools to Tomlinscote 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 our feeder 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 feeder visits in the summer term, as well as on our Year 6 Induction Day which is due to take place on Wednesday 30th June 2021. Please see the documents and links below for information about Tomlinscote and joining Year 7.
