Year 6–7 transition support
We believe that a smooth, positive and exciting transition from Year 6 to Year 7 is crucial to the start of each child’s secondary education. The aim of our transition process is for every pupil to move up to Westfield feeling excited, confident and cared for.
Students joining us in September 2021
We will write to you in early March, welcoming you into our school community. Enclosed with this letter will be some important forms that you need to complete, plus a welcome booklet with information about the school. You will also have a booklet for you to complete about yourself, so we can get to know you better.
This contains the information we have so far about our transition timetable. In the meantime, you can browse our website for information about travelling to school and what uniform and equipment you need. You can also find lots of information about school in the section for current parents and students.
You may also find it useful to browse the resources we produced last year when had to run transition during lockdown.
Last year's transition resources
Our new students may not be able to visit Westfield, but they can explore it via our transition video:
information for new parents
If your child has gained a place at Westfield you can also find additional information in our section for Current Parents & Students. This includes pages about uniform, equipment and behaviour.
You may also find it useful to read the document, Secondary Success (a survival guide for parents starting secondary school), which was put together by current parents in our Friends of Westfield School group. They have also created a Jargon Buster which you may find useful.
