Year 6 Transition

Year 6 Transition

Making the move from primary school to secondary school is an exciting time, with lots of changes to prepare for; a new timetable, new teachers and even new friends. To help students make the move a little bit easier we will include all of our information on this page.

During the Autumn term Mr Warburton will be visiting all of our feeder Primary schools to talk to Year 6 and give a presentation about the transition process. Normally we would hold prospective parental information evenings as well. Unfortunately we were unable to do this on site; instead we hosted a series of Zoom events.

We hope these Zoom meetings answered any questions you have about joining Ely College. Please remember you can still view our welcome video and take a virtual tour of the college.

If you were unable to attend any of our Zoom Meetings, you can still catch up on all our Prospective Parent Information by viewing a recording of one of the meetings below via the You Tube link below.
