A place to grow

Year 6 – 7 Transition 2022

We are delighted to welcome our new Year 7 students and families joining us in September 2022.

We hope you are looking forward to being part of the Bacon's College community.

The transition from primary to secondary school is a very exciting time for both students and their parents/carers, but we also understand that it can be daunting and you will have lots of questions.

We have lots planned from March to September to enable us to get to know each other, and to ensure that all your questions are answered.

Please make a note of the following dates - reminders will be sent via email nearer the time:

  • Online welcome meeting + Q&A for new parents, carers and students

Please scroll down to view recording

  • Information Evening (Face to Face)

You can view the slides from the Information Evening here.

  • Transition Morning - Allocated morning on the 4th OR 5th July 2022

New students spend the morning at Bacon's College. Families will be informed which allocated morning by 17th June 2022

  • Wednesday 7th September 2022 – Year 7’s first day at Bacon’s College – AM only

If you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to contact the school office, or email transition@baconscollege.co.uk
