St Bede's Year 6 Transition

Dear Year 6 Parents and Carers,

Please pass this message onto your son/daughter.

I know you will be both excited and nervous about joining us at St Bede’s in September. We are looking forward to meeting you all. To help you get ready for stepping up to our school we are going to set you some challenges each Monday. We’d love you to get involved in as much as possible, and let us see some of your contributions!

In the next 2 weeks, your parents will receive a pack of information through the post, and some forms to fill in all about you. There will be lots of things to read and talk about, getting you thinking about what life will be like in Secondary School.

To help us get to know you, our first challenge is for you to write us a letter or make a poster which tells us all about you. You might want to think about including the following things:

Your name and the Primary School you attend
Your best memories of Primary School
What you are interested in, both inside and outside of school
What you are most looking forward to about St Bede’s
Any questions you have about moving up
Anything else that you think the year 7 team would be interested in

You can either email your letter/poster to or pop it in the post, addressed to The Transition Team, St Bede’s Catholic School and Sixth Form College, Consett Road, Lanchester, Durham, DH7 0RD

We can’t wait to receive your letters and find out some more about you. Make sure you check your emails again next Monday for your second challenge!

Take care,

The Transition Team
