Information for Parents/Carers and Students about Year 7 transition

Transition to Year 7 September 2021

Congratulations on being allocated a place at Altrincham College for your child/ward in September 2021.

Over the next few weeks, we will be emailing parents & carers with a variety of transition information that we suggest you go through with your child/ward, so they are fully informed of everything they need to know ready to start in September.

Please find below a variety of documents that have been sent out already as part of the transition process and many resources associated with wellbeing that we hope you will find of use.

Please keep checking this page as more resources will be added over the coming weeks.

We look forward to welcoming students officially in September.

Wellbeing:

The physical and mental wellbeing of students is our priority, and we know this can be an anxious time for both students and parents/carers. In addition, your child/ward has had to cope with a global pandemic and all the disruption this has caused both in and out of school. Please find the links to some websites you may find helpful during the transition from primary to secondary school. We are here to support you, every step of the way.....
