Year 6 to 7 Transition 2021

Welcome from Emilie Lourdelet (Transition Coordinator)

Dear Parents and Carers,


I am delighted to welcome you and your child to Eggbuckland Community College.

The transition from primary to secondary school is an exciting time, full of challenges and experiences for both parent and child. At Eggbuckland, we work very hard to ensure maximum success for all our students so they are ready for the challenges of secondary school, enjoying new friendships and the new opportunities transition brings. The aim of our transition process is for every child to move up to our college feeling excited, confident and cared for.

Prior to the restrictions that Covid -19 has placed on schools, we would typically host a number of in school events for our new cohort of Year 7s. We hope to keep to the dates below as our key events are planned for after the 21st of June, when all lockdown measures are scheduled to be removed. However we will keep you updated if the situation changes.

Informal Parents / Carers Coffee Mornings: 

Monday 21st June - 9.15am – 10.15am

Wednesday 23rd June - 9.15am – 10.15 am

Year 7 Formal Introductions:  Thursday 8th July, at 6.00pm until 8pm (please report to Main College Reception on arrival)
