It can be a worrying time for students who are proposing to move to a new school; they understandably have concerns.
We have a comprehensive Transition Programme to ensure that your child feels welcome and settled at our school. All students will receive a visit from our Pastoral Team in the Summer Term prior to their joining us. This is an opportunity for your child to meet the team in a comfortable and familiar environment and also gives our staff an opportunity to talk to their current class teacher.
This is followed by an Induction Day in early July where your child will visit the school, get to know their peers and Form Tutors but also have a fun taster of what life at Blenheim can offer them.
During their first week at Blenheim we offer a staggered entry and also adjust our timetable and lesson rooms in order for our new Year 7's to gradually get to know the building, classrooms but more importantly us and each other.
We also host several Parent Information Evenings during the Summer Term prior to your child joining us and also during their first Term with us. We understand that it is also a daunting time for many parents/carers but we do our best to help with the adjustment to Secondary School.
