Transition from year six


***Transition Meeting***

Dear all,

I am delighted to invite you to an online ZOOM meeting where you will be able to hear key members of staff discuss the existing provision for your child and address any questions.

On Wednesday 16th June we would like to welcome you to join one of two 30 minute ZOOM meetings. We expect high numbers but after a short presentation by myself, there will be an opportunity to ask questions in smaller groups before re-joining as a collective group later. Please note the times for the groups below.

  • 6.00pm - Parents of pupils from Beeston Rylands and John Clifford.
  • 7.00pm - Parents of pupils at The Lanes, Eskdale and other educational providers.

A code will be sent out within 30 minutes of the event to the email address that we have on our system. Zoom meetings can either be accessed via your browser or through an app which can be downloaded from the zoom site.

I look forward to seeing you on the 16th of June. In the meantime, I hope you are keeping safe and feeling confident about your child’s transition to Chilwell School in September.

Best wishes

Mr D Phillips

I am pleased to say that we are able to implement a modified transitional programme for our new year seven pupils.  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 will be here with a smile and warmth as they take 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.   

So far there has been contact with your child’s primary school in order to collect information and provide our open evening information for our new year seven cohort for September 2021; further meetings are planned so that we can holistically consider the needs of your child, socially and academically.

We are also very aware that you may have questions, and we are keen to answer these where possible. Our open evening on 24th September involved key members of staff to explain the existing provision for your child and take questions. Please also see the guidance and FAQs section,

Dedicated inbox for our prospective parents.  If you have any queries related to your child's transition or the zoom meetings please email us at:
