Year 6 Transition

The move up to Secondary School is huge; there’s no doubt about it. Not just for the student themselves but for families too. However, we want to reassure you that as soon as your place is confirmed here at Medina College, we are here to support you every step of the way. We work closely with the primary schools to ensure a smooth handover and that we get to know your child prior to their arrival in September, so we can really hit the ground running.

We welcome the opportunity to speak with parents and carers to answer any questions they have. Parents are welcome to contact the school to arrange a telephone call with Mrs Mills, our Head of Year 7 from September 2024. 

We visit primary schools in the summer term to meet each and every student, not just to welcome them but to also answer any questions they may have. The aim is to soothe any anxieties they may have and to share the excitement of joining our wonderful community.

An Admissions booklet and Getting to know our students booklet will be sent out to Year 6 parents at the start of the summer term and the completed forms should be returned to school in the prepaid envelope, as soon as possible.

Hello and welcome to Medina College. I am Mrs Mills and will be your Head of Year in September. Miss Johnson will be your Assistant Head of Year. We both can’t wait to meet you all! 

Transition 2024 – Welcome

Student places for September 2024 have now been confirmed and we can’t wait to start getting to know our new families. A welcome postcard has been posted to all of our new students and a letter has been posted to their parents to confirm key dates in the transition process. Copies of these can be found below: 

A letter has been posted to parents accompanying the Admissions Booklet and Getting to Know You Booklet. A copy of the letter can be found below.
