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 easier we will include all of our information on this page.

During the Spring and Summer term, Mrs Goodey will be working closely with all our feeder primary schools. She will collaborate with the students' current Year 6 teachers and explore the best ways to support the children through the transition process.

In the meantime, you can view our take a look around the college and follow our social media channels to get a taste of student life at Ely College: @elycollege@ElyCollegeMT. You can find our term date here, and familiarise yourselves with the structure of the school day here.
