Transition from year six
I am pleased to say that we are able to implement a modified transitional programme for our year seven pupils who have joined us in September 2021. There are some changes, expectedly, but what remains the same is the enthusiasm and dedication of staff to ensure that your child is welcomed to Chilwell School. We were here with a smile and warmth as they took their first steps on their learning journey with us.
This is a section will be set up dedicated to transition - including a video tour of the school and regular assemblies. There will also be updated information about the processes and ways we are responding to government directives on the COVID 19 situation, along with other information we think you and your child will find useful.
Typically, our year sevens have been involved in many wonderful opportunities; discovery days, sporting competitions, working with our year eleven prefects, alongside a comprehensive PSHCE programme – all of which we hope to replicate. During our registration period, tutors have welcomed their tutees with humour, positivity and caring approach which has accompanied the successful management of our high expectations.
We are also very aware that you may have questions, and we are keen to answer these where possible. Our open evening on 23rd September for parents of students who plan to join us in 2022 will involve key members of staff to explain the existing provision for your child and take questions. Please also see the guidance and FAQs section,
