Year 6 Transition
Welcome to the TAG Transition page, where you can access resources and information about the transition from primary school.
Each week a new edition of the Transition newsletter will be added, covering a range of topics – from friendship and extra-curricular activities to uniform and homework.
We have also created a booklet for our SEND students that you can download, with lots of information about the teaching staff and the SEND and ASD bases. SEND Transition Booklet
We are delighted to share details of our transition summer school with parents and students. Summer school will run from Thursday 22 July to Wednesday 28 July, and will be a great opportunity for students to start to form friendships with others in their year group, meet key staff, get to know the routines and expectations of the academy, and have fun!
Students must be able to attend all five days. If your child would like to attend, please complete the form below;
We would like to introduce you to our school, and Mr Warnes and some of our students made the video below to give you a quick tour. We hope that soon you will be able to come and see for yourself, but we hope the video helps you in the meantime.
We believe that an excellent standard of uniform lays the foundations for an exceptional experience during a student’s time with us, and helps them prepare for the high expectations both employers and universities will have of our young people in the future.
We have high uniform standards, and strongly recommend that parents and students review our guide before making any purchases. You can find the guide on our Uniform Page
Q&A for Year 6 Parents & Students
We have lots of exciting things planned to ensure that the transition from primary school goes smoothly, and the children feel happy and confident about their next steps. The first of these will be a Q&A session for Year 6 students and parents to ask our Year 7 students and transition team any questions they have. Please submit your questions via the link below! Once we’ve gathered a range of questions, we will set up an event, hosted by our students, where we answer each question and give you all of the information you need before your child starts with us in September.
We will publish a newsletter each week, giving additional information about an aspect of life at Trinity Academy Grammar. The newsletter will be available in this section and will be sent directly to parents via email. (If you are not receiving the newsletters, please email firstname.lastname@example.org so we can check your details.)
