Year 6 into Year 7 Transition

Year 7 Intake 2019

The transition from primary to high school is an exciting time, full of challenges and experiences for both parent and child. We work very hard to ensure maximum success for all our pupils so they are ready for the challenges of secondary school, enjoying new friendships and the new opportunities high school brings.

Induction Evening

This year, we will be holding two presentations in the hall. Please see below for details about when to attend. The presentations, which will last for approximately 30 minutes, will provide important information about transition and induction, including an outline of the Induction Days to be held on Wednesday, 3rd and Thursday, 4th July.

As previously mentioned, we expect a large number of parents and carers to attend this evening so, unfortunately, children cannot be accommodated.

Your First Day At Redhill School

  • All new Year 7 pupils must arrive by 8:30am.

  • You will be directed to the Main Hall where you will have a welcome assembly with Mr Mountford, Head of Year 7.

  • You will be reminded which form you are in after the assembly and your Form Tutor will take you to your form room. 

  • You will spend most of the morning with your form and your Form Tutor.

  • Your form Tutor will help you find your way around, give you a timetable, answer your questions and generally help you to settle in. 

  • Year 10 mentors will also be on hand to support you both in form and as you move around the school site.

'Who can I go to for help?'

Your Form and Form Tutor

You will be put into a form, where possible, with a least one friend from your previous school. You will have a Form Tutor, who will be there to look after you. He/she will get to know you very well.  They will see you at morning registration every day and will teach you for PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education).

Your Head of Year

Your Head of Year is responsible for all the pupils in Year 7. He or she will usually take your assemblies and will help you if you have a problem. 

Peer Mentors

At Redhill School, there is a dedicated group of Year 10 pupils who receive specialist training to become Peer Mentors. Each Peer Mentor is attached to a Year 7 Form and gets to know the pupils in that group so that he or she can help with any issues or worries that they may have. 

The Pastoral Team

The Pastoral Office is the place to go if you have a problem during the school day.
