Year 6 – 7 Transition 2020

We are delighted to welcome our new Year 7 students who will join us in September 2020. We have a well-established programme to support your transition from primary to secondary school so that it a smooth and helpful process for all.

Update: July 2020

In light of the ongoing situation with the COVID-19 pandemic, we are currently updating our website to support your transition to Bacon’s College. In these challenging and uncertain times, we wish to reassure you that here at Bacon’s, we are doing everything we can to ensure that your move to secondary school is a good and enjoyable experience. While we are in strange times and everyone is learning remotely, it remains the case that we are delighted you have chosen Bacon’s as your secondary school and we are excited for you to experience what school life is like here. Please take the time to look at all the resources here on our website, so you begin to get a sense of Bacon’s and what it will be like when you start with us in September.

In the meantime, any questions or queries can be directed to this email address: transition@baconscollege.co.uk

Summer Holidays Content

To help prepare you for September and keep you occupied over Summer, we have put together a number of documents. Click on the title to view the documents.

Summer Curriculum - Each of our subjects have put together a bit of information about what you will be learning in Year 7 and, in some cases, summer challenges for you to complete. 

Summer Project - Every year we ask our new Year 7s to complete a summer project book over the holidays. To celebrate your journey from primary to secondary school we want you to tell us about journeys that mean something to you. This has a creative piece where you can use any medium you like to tell us about a journey and also contains a series of journey-related activities for you to complete.

Things to do over summer - Here you will find a document we put together when schools first closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Here you will find things you can do online across summer, from reading to virtual visits!
