Welcome future Year 7s – September 2022!

Year 6 Transition – Introduction to the school 2022

Over the last two years, when we planned and delivered Transition to The Hamble School from Primary School to Secondary, whilst in the middle of the Coronavirus pandemic we adapted our process to run both a virtual transition and a blended physical and virtual transition. Over the two years we have selected the most effective parts of our virtual and physical transition process to give our new Year 6 students the best Transition experience possible.

At The Hamble School we know how important Transition is to enable students to have a smooth move to Secondary school. We pride ourselves on the series of events that we put in place to make sure we have the best knowledge and understanding of each Year 6 who will be joining us.

This year, we are looking at running the following events/activities:

  • We will be visiting your child’s primary schools to meet with their teachers and for some schools, meeting some students who will be coming up to us.
  • Your child’s primary school will be putting together a comprehensive package of information for us so we can ensure we know any specific needs your child might have, what their successes are in primary school and any points that would be useful to know for their development.
  • You will have a chance to book a tour of the school. Depending on national restrictions we are hoping these can be full tours both in and outside classrooms, if not they may be an external tour of the school.
  • Every parent and child will have a personal consultation meeting with a member of the senior team in school. This is a perfect opportunity to highlight any important factors you feel it would be useful for us to know, ask any questions about the transition process, or just give your child a chance to get to know a key member of staff in school to make starting with us less daunting.
  • Students will attend The Hamble School for physical ‘Induction Days’. This is a perfect opportunity for students to get to know the school a bit prior to September, form friendships and learn how Secondary School works (and that it’s not quite as scary as they think!).

*Please be aware that some of these will be subject to specific conditions that are related to Coronavirus and the current state of Coronavirus, nationally. This may mean that we are unable to run certain events or that we may need to change some of these events.

The plan below gives you an indication as to when certain events will be happening.
