Year 6 Transition Info

Welcome

Thank you for choosing Wildern School as the secondary school for your son/daughter starting with us in September.  We look forward to welcoming you to our school.  Here you will find all the information you need for joining us.

We work closely with the Primary and Junior schools to support students from Year 6 through to their arrival in Year 7.  On the Year 6 Parent Member area you will find a wealth of information about our school.  There are copies of recent letters below. 

Moving from primary school to secondary school is an exciting time of life but for many children it can also be a daunting prospect. A new, much bigger school can offer greater independence, such as the first smart phone, and a world of opportunity. However it also means new teachers, new subjects and potentially a whole new set of friends.

We very much look forward to welcoming your son/daughter into our community and working in partnership with you.
