Dear Year 6 pupils, parent’s and carers,


It is with a heavy heart that we have to inform you that our Year 6 Transition Day, planned for 2nd July, and our New Intake Evenings, scheduled for 5th and 6th July, are now unable to go ahead as a consequence of the Governments delay in the easing of Covid-19 restrictions. We were very much looking forward to meeting our prospective pupils and welcoming them and their families in to St Mary’s and we are all disappointed by this news. For the remainder of the summer term, we shall continue to work with our primary colleagues to support the transition process but, if you have no previous connection with the school and you wish to visit as a small family group, please do not hesitate to contact us.


We hope to be able to invite you in to school early in September and we shall be in touch as soon as we are able to finalise dates. In the meantime please keep an eye on this page of the school website as we will be updating it regularly with transition information. The highlight being each Friday when a new Transition video will be uploaded. In this Friday’s video you will meet your Pastoral Leader and experience a tour of the school Click here to view.


If there is anything specific you or your child would like us to focus a video on, please let us know! We would love to hear your ideas and we are very keen to do everything we can to ease the transition process.


Sincere thanks for your understanding and support.


Mrs Pilling

Assistant Head Teacher.
