Year 6 Transition – September 2021

Welcome to the Calder Learning Trust whether you are a parent or will be a Year 7 student next September!  

We are currently planning our transition programme for the next cohort of students to be joining us. For obvious reasons such plans will need to be flexible and are likely to be a blended mix of virtual and real-life opportunities and events.  

Please keep a keen eye on this webpage as we will be adding new content and information frequently over the next few months. 

If you have any questions regarding transition, please contact the Head of Year 7, Mrs McLaughlin,

Key Dates:

Thursday 24th June, 6pm: Parent/student welcome presentation. This will be an online event. You should already have been sent a link to this event by e mail. We look forward to meeting you at this important information evening. If, however, you cannot make it, our presentation will be uploaded to this page shortly after the event.

w/b Monday 16th August: Summer School Week 1
