Transition 2024 Key Dates

Throughout the course of the next 2 terms there will be a range of Transition activities for young people to be involved in. 

For any young person who receives information about a confirmed placement request (30 April 2024), then they will be allowed to engage in transition activities after this date. All learners who are required to make a placement request should engage with transition activities for their catchment school to ensure a place is guaranteed in their catchment school, should your placement request be unsuccessful.

Uniform Evening 

This is an opportunity to come along and order your Uniform. There is only one evening in the year when you can do this so it is a perfect time to come along and meet some other parents and make your order. These are usually delivered to the school during the holidays and then can be picked up on the INSET Days in August of the next academic year. Information confirming this will be issued nearer the time.
