Transition Day for Year 7 students starting Westholme Senior School in September 2017
Wednesday 21st June 2017
The Transition Afternoon and Evening for new Year 7 starters (September 2017) will take place on Wednesday 21st June 2017. This will be an opportunity for you to find out a little more about Year 7 and to meet other pupils, key staff members and parents before your child joins us in September. We hope that you are beginning to feel well acquainted with the Westholme ethos, but the transition from Year 6 to Year 7 is significant and our experienced pastoral team is here to ensure that this transition is as seamless as possible. This event is an important part of that process.
You should arrive with your child at 1.30pm where you will be met by some of our current students and staff on the car park. We have a full afternoon of events planned starting at 1.40pm where children will meet their classmates and have the opportunity to sample some lessons and meet teachers. We will provide tea in the Dining Hall to be followed by form time. Our main aim throughout the afternoon is for all pupils to form new friendships, meet teachers and to see the school as they will find it in September – a friendly and welcoming place. We recommend that all pupils come in comfortable clothes and trainers or similar shoes; they should not wear school uniform and long hair should be tied back.
Parents are warmly invited to join us in the Theatre at 5.45pm for a prompt 6pm start. We will give you information about Year 7 and the start of term arrangements. Students and their Form Tutors will then join us for refreshments. In addition please note that your child will be starting their Secondary School career on Tuesday 5th September before the rest of the students return and we will speak to you further about these arrangements on Transition Evening.
