Transition (Year 6 to 7)

Our Transition Programme ensures new students feel happy, settled and secure from their very first day at secondary school.

It is extremely important we get to know every student who comes to Humphrey Perkins School as quickly as possible. Prior to their first day we invest time and resources in understanding each child’s personality and abilities, as well as what they like to study, where they excel and where they may need additional support. This enables us to personalise their learning.

During the Spring term we hold our Welcome Evening, which gives an opportunity for new parents to find out more about our school from the Principals and our Head of Year 7. You can find our welcome presentation/video for new Year 7’s at the bottom of this page.

Where possible we try to visit students and their teachers in their primary schools in order to speak to the teachers who know them best (outside of home) before they join us. Induction is carefully planned. All students who will be joining us in September are invited to school at the beginning of July. They will take part in learning activities and lessons, meet their Tutor and gain a feel for the school. Parents are also invited in to ‘Tea at Humphreys’. This is an opportunity to speak to the Head of Year (Mrs Cripps) and sample some of our Restaurant meals!

Students with additional needs may also be invited to attend extra small group visits, allowing for students to feel familiar with our school and staff even before our Induction days.

At Humphrey Perkins we value all students and make great efforts to ensure they feel valued and supported at this crucial time of transition.
