A message from the Year 7 Transition team

Dear parent/guardian,
We are delighted to welcome your son/daughter to Winchcombe School. At Winchcombe school we work hard to ensure that the transition from
primary to secondary is successful because we understand that it can be an exciting and challenging time for both parents and child. We therefore aim to work closely with year 6 teachers to make sure that we receive the required information to ensure students are able to embrace all the new opportunities secondary school brings and to help them to have a smooth transition. Our transition programme also aims to introduce new students to school life whilst enabling them to gain confidence, develop self-esteem and resilience. We want to make sure that students have ample opportunity to get used to their new routines and the way the school is organised. More details with regards to our transition programme will follow in due course. In the meantime please find links to uniform, transport and other useful information on this page. Please note – If you intend to use the bus services we do suggest you make contact with the providers as soon as possible. Marchant Bus Services and Henshaw Coaches are the providers.

Furthermore, our school website should have all the information you need. However, if you have any questions regarding the transition process please do
not hesitate to contact us at the school on transitions@winchcombeschool.co.uk

With kind regards,
Mrs Gemma Burgess & Mrs Jenny Thomas
