Primary Transition

Transition September 2024

Transition Information Booklet

Moving from primary to secondary school can be a daunting prospect for Year 6 pupils. To help reduce the anxiety and maintain the achievements of primary school. The programme begins before Year 6 with our staff working closely with our partner primary schools on a range of activities designed to help students get to know us better. 

The Transition Programme 

Targeted Parent / Carer Meetings: May – July 2024 - The transition team from Gable Hall School will visit primary school teachers to collect relevant information for the transition process. These meetings are organised specifically for parents or carers whose children have special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), ensuring that necessary support is provided for a smooth transition.

Year 6 Intake Evening - Wednesday 26th June 2024 4-6pm

  • Giffards Primary School at 4.00pm
  • Corringham Primary and Arthur Bugler 4.45pm
  • Graham James Primary Academy and all other schools 5.30pm
  • All other schools are welcome to join at any of the times above. 

This is our annual new intake evening for parents/carers considering Gable Hall for their child’s secondary education. Year 6 students are welcome to join us for this very special evening when there will be presentations by the Principal. 

New Year 7 Transition Day: Tuesday July 2nd 2024 - Gable Hall's proud tradition of Year 6 Transition days now condenses into a single day, ensuring students feel prepared for their September start. This experience facilitates getting to know their classmates and build confidence in the new environment, featuring taster lessons for acclimation to daily life.
