For Students, Parents/Carers

New Students

Welcome to our new Year 7 Students

Year 6 Transition

“The benefits of our comprehensive transition process will be that:

  • Students arrive at Temple Moor confident, secure and ready to succeed.
  • Parents/carers and students are both fully aware and informed at all stages of how school life will change from Primary to Secondary School.
  • Students are allocated to a suitable form and teaching groups, based on pastoral and academic information from primary school.
  • Learning is able to begin quickly in September, as pupils have prior experience of the school – whether in virtual or practical.”

Mrs K Cuddy – Associate Senior Assistant Principal


We know how daunting the move to secondary school can be for both students and parents/carers on any given year and appreciate that the situation around COVID-19 could have heightened those worries and concerns. We want to assure you that despite the challenges, we are still working closely with our primary partners and have evolved our transition process so that the process remains smooth and easy as possible for everyone.

We have strong links with our partner primary schools. Throughout the year, staff work closely together to share good practice and link learning at Key Stage 2 and 3. This has not changed, and we have enhanced how we work together using virtual and practical means. We have already started meeting with our Primary partners to ensure we have key information about students to aid a smooth transition process.

Once students arrive with us in September, we do a lot of work to help with the settling in process for all students, the students have both a Pastoral Leader, and a Phase Leader, Mr Sutton. These key staff work with teams of people within the school, including form tutors and teaching staff, to help ensure everyone is informed about new students coming to us and this helps build effective relationships quickly.

Please read the Transition Booklet as this holds key information regarding the transition process, and has practical information about procedures at Temple Moor.
