Year 6/7 Transition

Welcome to St Bede's

We are very much looking forward to welcoming Year 6 students to our St Bede's family. Moving from primary to secondary school is an exciting but somewhat daunting experience for both students and families alike. Here at St. Bede’s, we recognise what a big step it is and are therefore committed to delivering a transition programme that provides creative and enjoyable opportunities for all. 


St. Bede’s has a dedicated Transition Team who will work with and support all prospective and new Year 7 students to ensure their transition is as smooth as possible. We have developed a fantastic transition programme that will help your child to become more familiar with our school, make new friends and prepare for the exciting opportunities still to come. 


On this page, families can find lots of useful information and guidance about supporting your child's journey into secondary school. Do get in touch at if you have any additional questions and we will be happy to support you. 

Video Welcome from our Year 7 Students;

This week our Year 7 students have produced, filmed and starred in a short video to help you get to know more about being a student here at St Bede’s. We hope you enjoy learning more about the curriculum, the range of clubs and activities on offer and having a look around the building. You will soon meet some of the students when you come for your transition day next week!
