Year 6 Transition

Year 6 Transition 

End of Term UPDATE: You can now view and print off these 'optional project booklets' to ease your transition from Year 6 to Year 7 at Ely College. These fun activities will keep you busy over the summer but also help you get to know staff in our core departments. We all look forward to meeting you soon. Have a great summer break!  



Thursday 1st July EVENT UPDATE: Thank you for joining us for our Year 6 Information Evening. Due to current restrictions, it had to be virtual, but on a plus note the videos from the evening can still be viewed below. We shared lots of information with you and enjoyed answering your questions. Thank you for joining us. The House introductions with House staff and Senior Tutors, can be accessed are below. Please click on your child's House below to view the second half of the event.


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 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.  We recognise that this year your family may need additional reassurance about the process, considering the recent school closures and Coronavirus restrictions. Please be assured we are continually reviewing and adapting our transition programme. At the moment we are unable to host face to face transition events in College. However you can view our welcome video and take a virtual tour of the college.
