Transition: Year 6 into Year 7

Mrs J. Szpunar – Assistant Headteacher
Miss D. Hennan – Head of Year 7

Welcome to the Transition page. Congratulations on gaining a place at The Derby High School for September 2022. We are all excited about your child joining our school. Mrs Szpunar is the Assistant Headteacher responsible for transition.

We understand that the move from primary to secondary school can be a daunting time for students. The Derby High school host several events throughout the summer before students start the school in September to ensure that transition is as worry-free as possible.  These include-

  • A visit to primary school by our staff to provide information and to answer students questions
  • A transition day to meet teachers, new peers and to have a school tour
  • A transition evening for parents and students to provide information and to answer questions
  • Summer school
  • Invitation to our garden party
  • Extra Enhanced transition visits for vulnerable students
