Year 6 to 7 Transition - Download

Dear Parents, Carers and Students,

It is with great pleasure that we are able to welcome you as a future Our Lady and St Chad's student.  We are really pleased that you have chosen our Catholic family for your future education and we promise to do all we can to help you achieve your dreams over the next 5, or hopefully 7 years.  We hope that you are just as excited as we are to start our Year 7 adventure together.

To date we have sent a number of emails to the email address that you provided to the Local Authority when you applied for a school place.  If you have not received these emails or if you would like us to use a different email then please contact us using info@olscmail.org.uk.  One of the emails requests parents complete the Online Student Information Form.  You can find this form by clicking here.

Of course, the situation is a little unusual this year but we want to let you know that although the transition to secondary school will be a little different, all of our usual activities will take place.  The events might be at a different time and even include online meetings but you will not miss out on anything we usually do to support students in their transition to Year 7.

Below you will find a welcome video and a range of documents containing information that you may find useful.  We will be updating this page regularly over the coming weeks and therefore would encourage you to visit every so often.

For now though, please try not to worry about a thing.  Starting secondary school is a big change but it is one that is exciting and full of opportunities, especially at Our Lady and St Chad's.  We will support you wholeheartedly in the way that is suited to what you need when you need it.

Mr P. Taylor
Assistant Principal for Lower School
