Welcome to our ‘Transition Page’.
Obviously, this year transition planning is looking very different after extended lockdown in all our schools and the impact of the new social distancing measures. We’re sorry that we won’t meet most of you in person before the September but will be putting alternatives in place for you to get the information you need.
Over the course of the next 3 months, a number of documents will be placed here to help your son or daughter gain as much knowledge and information as possible about their new school when they join in Year 7. During the lockdown we have been busy gathering and speaking to Year 6 teachers to ensure we have all the information about your child’s learning needs to make a smooth transition to St Gabriel’s.

Now that most primary schools are able to confirm their plans for Year 6 to return to school we will be distributing a transition video and pack of key information for pupils over the next fortnight. We will also provide the opportunity for parents and pupils to ask questions and for us to set up a chance for pupils at our main feeder schools to meet Mr Killion (our Head of Year 7) either in person or on screen.
At the start of July we will also circulate a video and pack for parents with the key messages from the induction evening and more details of planning and advice for September.
We look forward to welcoming our new Year 7 into the St Gabriel’s family and starting their journey of faith and learning.
