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 to parents and carers throughout the spring and summer terms. We also organise visits to meet each and every  student at their primary school, 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. 

We look forward to opening our doors in the summer term for our Transition Days, where our new year group will spend two days familiarising themselves with our site, the teachers and their new peers. 

On behalf of our community, I would like to offer the warmest welcome and to say we can’t wait for you to join us!

Head of Year 7 & Transition Lead

Transition Update: 5 April 2022

Admission packs have now been posted out to everyone in our September 2022 cohort. Please complete the admissions booklet and return it to us as soon as possible. This provides us with lots of important information such as contact details and medical information. There is also a getting to know our new student booklet. Please encourage your child to complete this and return it to us along with the admissions booklet. This, along with the visit I will make to your child in their primary school, will really help me to get to know them quickly and be able to support them through the transition period. 

Please do not hesitate to book a telephone appointment with me if you have any queries or concerns at this point. Please contact Miss Keogh on 01983 526523 to arrange an appointment.
